Passive structural vibration control of a monopile wind turbine tower

Abstract

Offshore wind turbines suffer from severe wind and wave conditions which generate heavy fluctuating loads and vibrations leading to fatigue of turbine towers. We employ tuned mass dampers (TMDs) as passive structural vibration control method to reduce fluctuating loads acting on the tower. We obtain a discretized state space model from the coupled non… (More)
