Abstract

This research aims to design a wind farm controller to trade off the grid requirements against the operators need to for optimal utilisation of their assets by using the Power Adjusting Controller (PAC). The PAC was developed for the 5MW Supergen Exemplar wind turbine [1] and allows the wind farm operator to manipulate the power outcome of each individual wind turbine, and consequently alter the power output of the wind farm. The PAC can be used to either reduce or increase the power output of a wind turbine, whilst keeping its operation within a safe operational region.
