Model Predictive Control for Power Optimization in a Hydrostatic Wind Turbine
Proceedings from the 13th Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power, June 3-5, 2013, Linköping, Sweden
Model predictive control (MPC) is applied to a mid-sized hydrostatic (HST) wind turbine for maximizing power capture in this paper. This study focuses on the torque control in region 2, which tracks the desired rotor speed so that the turbine can operate at the optimum tip-speed ratio (TSR) for maximum power. Preliminary study shows that the widely used control law has a good control performance in steady-state wind conditions. However due to wind turbulence, the turbine operates at tip-speeddoi:10.3384/ecp1392a16 fatcat:bk544sst5rgwbdvjoyh6vi6eru
