Nonlinear Control of Variable Speed Wind Turbines without wind speed measurement

  title={Nonlinear Control of Variable Speed Wind Turbines without wind speed measurement},

  journal={Proceedings of the 44th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control},
A nonlinear approach, for variable speed wind turbines control, is presented by considering that there is no wind speed measurement. The control objective below rated wind speed is to maximize the extracted energy from the wind while reducing mechanical loads. The existing control techniques do not take into account the dynamical aspect of the wind and the turbine, which leads to significant power losses, besides, they are not robust. In order to bring some improvement and to evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
