Objective
To consolidate a control design basis for floating wind turbines.

Results

  • Verification of linear models produced using Bladed.
  • Analysis of stability margins and generation of performance metrics.
  • Baseline floating controller development.
Advanced features:
  • IPC to reduce tower nod and roll.
  • Generator torque to reduce roll.
  • MIMO control design methods.

Value created
Enhanced technology control design for floating turbines.

Quote from DNV GL project expert
“We secured a number of commercial contracts in 2014 and 2015 by establishing our ambition to be at the forefront of advanced control strategy research for floating wind.”
