Abstract

A Wind farm controller has been proposed with the objective of maximizing generated power whilst reducing the fatigue loads on the turbines. Since the loads on a wind turbine depend on both the wind-field/rotor interaction and the turbine full envelope controller, the simulation models must include the most significant turbine structural modes, the full envelop controller as well as a representation of the wind-field. In this paper, a wind farm Simulink model that captures all these relevant dynamic elements is reported. In addition, wind farm control is investigated. The objective is to maintain maximum wind farm power output whilst redistributing the fatigue loads between turbines.
