Wind being the primary energy resource has a huge influence on the dynamic behavior of wind turbines. Therefore, the control algorithms can be further improved if the wind speed is known by the controller. Unfortunately, either no accurate direct online measurement of the effective wind speed is available or the measurement system is too expensive, which means that it should be estimated in order to make such improvement applicable on the control algorithm in practice. In this paper a new… CONTINUE READING
