Wright, Control of Wind Turbines: Past, Present and Future, American Control Conference, 2009. 20 11/9/2010 System Components Figure from the US DOE Power vs. Wind Characteristics Pwind Region 3: Rated Power+ Load Reduction Region 2: Maximize Power Cut-in Cut-out Plot based on Clipper Liberty C100 2.5MW turbine (R=50m, Vcutin = 4m/s, Vcutout = 25m/s) assuming Cp,max = 0.4 21 11/9/2010 Supervisory Control • Supervisory control switches turbine between modes based on wind conditions, startup, and emergency stops • Logic for Clipper’s Liberty Wind Turbines: – Slide 27 of September 9 talk by Steve Owens shows the operating states for Clipper’s Liberty Turbines – Turbine cut-in at 4m/s based on 10min average – Turbine cut-out at 25m/s based on 10min average Yaw Control • Yaw rotor into wind in both regions 2 and 3 • Yaw dynamics are slow due to large nacelle mass Wind Heading Yaw Cmd. Measured Yaw Angle Error PID Actuator Yaw Dyn. Sensor 22 11/9/2010 Region 2 Control • Objective: Maximize power capture by holding β=βopt (constant) and using τg to track λopt Figure from: K. Johnson, L. Pao, M. Balas, and L. Fingersh, Control of Variable Speed Wind Turbines, IEEE Control Systems Mag., June 2006 Region 2: Possible Control Strategy • Compute desired rotor speed using the optimal tip speed ratio (TSR) and measured wind speed. ωdes = λopt v R • Issues: – Shadowing effects corrupt wind speed measurement – Uncertainty in power coefficient model Measured Wind Speed TSR Relation Optimal TSR βopt Desired Rotor Speed Error PID τg Turbine wind Measured Rotor Speed 23 11/9/2010 Region 2: Standard Controller • Control Law τ g = Kω 2 3C where K = 1 ρAR λ 2 p ,max 3 max – Ref: Johnson, et al, 2006 Control System Mag. – For typical operating conditions, convergence to optimal power capture in steady state – Only requires rotor speed sensor – Control law still depends on uncertain power coefficient model.
