Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A gain-scheduled feedforward controller employing pseudo-LIDAR wind measurement is designed to augment the baseline feedback controller for wind turbine load reduction during above rated operation. The feedforward controller is firstly designed based on a linearised wind turbine model at one specific wind speed, then expanded for full above rated operational envelope with gain scheduling. The wind evolution model is established using the pseudo-LIDAR measurement data which is generated from Bladed using a designed sampling strategy. The combined feedforward and baseline control system is simulated on a 5MW industrial wind turbine model developed at Strathclyde University. Simulation results demonstrate that the gain scheduling feedforward control strategy can improve the rotor and tower load reduction performance for large wind turbines.
