    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.
