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

This paper investigates two different approaches for individual pitch control for wind turbines. The first one is a gain scheduled decentralised control design and the second one is a robust H∞ loop shaping control design. Both controllers work well in the region above rated wind speed, exhibiting a response that is mostly independent of wind speed. The investigation is conducted based on the NREL 5MW benchmark wind turbine. Turbine modeling and control is conducted in FAST and Simulink.
