Wind turbine preview control has recently attracted attention in the literature. This is due to significant load attenuation and power optimization benefits that can be obtained by incorporating wind preview measurements into the turbine control laws. However, the trade-offs between performance, preview time, and actuation rate limits are not well understood. This paper investigates the fundamental limits of performance for the Region 3 rotor speed regulation problem. An optimal control problem… CONTINUE READING
