Wave disturbance reduction of a floating wind turbine using a reference model-based predictive control

Abstract

Floating wind turbines are considered as a new and promising solution for reaching higher wind resources beyond the water depth restriction of monopile wind turbines. But on a floating structure, the wave-induced loads significantly increase the oscillations of the structure. Furthermore, using a controller designed for an onshore wind turbine yields… (More)
