The Matlab/Simulink model of the Supergen (Sustainable Power Generation and Supply) Wind 5 MW exemplar wind turbine, which has been employed by a number of researchers at various institutions and Universities over the last decade, is improved, especially in speed, to facilitate wind farm modelling. Note that wind farm modelling usually involves duplicating wind turbine models, hence the speed of each turbine model is critical in wind farm modelling. The objective is achieved through various stages, including prewarping, implicit and explicit discretisation, and conversion to C. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate that improvement in speed is significant and that the resulting wind turbine model can be used for wind farm modelling more efficiently. It is important to highlight that improvement in speed is achieved without compromising the complexity of the turbine model; that is, each turbine included in a wind farm is not simplified or compromised.
