ABSTRACT:
The use of wind power for generating electricity has experienced an uninterrupted and accelerating growth over last few decades and this growth is likely to continue. In order to enable even greater role of wind energy in power production it is necessary to increase the size and unit power of wind turbines. As wind turbines grow in size they are subjected to extreme loads and fatigue caused by nonuniform turbulent winds. Therefore, control algorithms that can assure load and fatigue reduction become a necessity. In this paper the individual pitch control for reduction of the periodic blade and hub loading is explored. To avoid problems related to the required blade loads measurements a method for their estimation based on other process variables is proposed. The performance of the individual pitch controller that uses such load estimations instead of measurements is tested and compared to the collective pitch control and the individual pitch control based on measured loads.
