Keynote presentation — 1: Optimal operation of large wind turbine arrays through farmlevel control

William Edward Leithead
2015 2015 21st International Conference on Automation and Computing (ICAC)  
With the development of large offshore wind farms and attainment of high wind power penetration, it is no longer satisfactory for wind farms to be passive providers of generated power. Instead, offshore wind farms must become virtual generation plant that behave similarly to conventional generation. The power must be adjusted as required by the operators. To do so, requires flexible operation of the individual turbines and a wind farm controller to match power output to demand.
