  author={Jacob Deleuran Grunnet and Mohsen Nourbakhsh Soltani and Torben Knudsen and Martin Kragelund and Thomas Bak},
This paper presents the wind farm simulation model developed in the EU-FP7 project, AEOLUS. The idea is to provide a publicly available simulation package for researchers developing farm level control solutions. With the software it is possible to auto generate a wind farm simulation model in Matlab/Simulink based on turbine parameters and farm geometry. The input to the farm simulator is power set points of individual turbines. Outputs from the farm simulation are power production, nacelle… 
Distributed model predictive control for active power control of wind farm
This paper presents the active power control of a wind farm using the Distributed Model Predictive Controller (D-MPC) via dual decomposition. Different from the conventional centralized wind farm
Distributed Control of Wind Farm
The growing use of wind energy as major energy source, has led to the construction of large wind farms. The control of such wind farms is typically separated into control at wind turbine level and at
Wind Turbine Control with Multiple Model Predictive Control
In this work, model predictive control of a wind-turbine system is studied. The nonlinear process is represented by a set of local linear models which were linearized for different wind speeds. Since
On Using Wind Speed Preview to Reduce Wind Turbine Tower Oscillations
A numerically efficient framework for the feedforward controller synthesis is developed and a simple yet meaningful parametric model of the measurement distortion is proposed and used to analyze the effects of distortion characteristics on the achievable performance and on the required length of preview.
Assessment of Extremum Seeking Control for Wind Farm Energy Production
Aerodynamic interaction among turbines grouped together in wind farms causes a decrease in the total energy extracted from the wind when compared to an equal number of widely dispersed turbines
Load reduction of wind turbines using receding horizon control
This paper addresses the design of a model-based receding horizon control scheme to reduce the structural loads in the transmission system and the tower, as well as provide constant (or at least smooth) power generation.
Nested extremum seeking control for wind farm power optimization
The paper illustrates how to select the frequencies of the dither signals (used by the ESCs) to reduce the sensitivity to turbulent wind fluctuations in the estimation of the gradients used for real-time power maximization.
Wake redirecting using feedback control to improve the power output of wind farms
A controller is proposed which uses the yaw actuator of a wind turbine to steer the wake center of the turbine to a desired position and can be considered as a promising step towards closed-loop wind farm control.
1 Coordinated Voltage Control Scheme for VSC-HVDC Connected Wind Power Plants
This paper proposes a coordinated voltage control scheme based on model predictive control (MPC) for voltage source converter‐based high voltage direct current (VSC‐HVDC) connected wind power plants
A Model-Free Approach to Wind Farm Control Using Game Theoretic Methods
It is demonstrated that this learning rule can provably maximize energy production in wind farms without explicitly modeling the aerodynamic interaction amongst the turbines.


Stability and control of wind farms in power systems
This paper describes the simulation model of a controller that enables an active-stall wind turbine to ride through transient faults. The simulated wind turbine is connected to a simple model of a
Grid support of a wind farm with active stall wind turbines and AC grid connection
One of the main concerns in the grid integration of large wind farms is their ability to behave as active controllable components in the power system. This article presents the design of a new
A note on wind generator interaction
A simple model for the wake behind a wind generator is given. The model is compared to some full scale experimental results. The model is then used in an example where the production from a circular
Analytical modelling of wind speed deficit in large offshore wind farms
The proposed model for the wind speed deficit in wind farms is analytical and encompasses both small wind farms and wind farms extending over large areas. As is often the need for offshore wind
Three-Dimensional Wind Simulation
A method for numerically simulating a three-dimensional field of turbulent windspeed (the “Sandia method”) for use in the aerodynamic and structural analyses of wind turbines is presented. The
Large-scale Wind Power Farms as Power Plants
The integration of large-scale wind power into weak power systems raises several issues that must be clarified. Typically these include the practical connection to the network, integration with the
Definition of a 5-MW Reference Wind Turbine for Offshore System Development
This report describes a three-bladed, upwind, variable-speed, variable blade-pitch-to-feather-controlled multimegawatt wind turbine model developed by NREL to support concept studies aimed at
Lateral coherence in isotropic turbulence and in the natural wind
A short review of experimental findings is given, followed by a theoretical derivation, based on Taylor's hypothesis, of formulas for lateral coherences. It is assumed that the flow is stationary and
