Abstract

This paper suggests two methods to calculate the gains of a proportional-Integral pitch angle controller for a 5 MW wind turbine. The first method is analytical and the second one is based on simulation. Firstly, the power coefficient characteristics for different pitch angles are calculated. Secondly, the output powers vs. rotor speed curves from cut-in to cut-out wind speeds are simulated. The results from first and second analyses used to find the control gains at different wind speeds. Finally, the results are compared using a wind turbine model to determinate turbine’s tracking characteristic.
