Controller Optimization

We make suggestions to improve the performance of the turbines concerning reduction of loads and increase energy production. In close cooperation with our customers and together with suppliers we suggest ways for improvement. With modern analysis tools and our long expertise we interprete data by performing simulation to find the cause for possible malfunction. Finally, the performance of the wind turbine will be improved.

Sometimes optimization of wind turbine control and design parameters are utilized achive smaller loads in general or for specitic components such as blades, drive train, tower, brakes, …

Selected projects

  • Stability check of PID pitch parameters, optimization of parameters for given target functions
  • Optimization of parameters to reduce ultimate/fatigue loads or loads on certain components
  • Revision and optimization of existing control strategy
  • Revision and optimization of existing brake procedures
