A theoretical framework for the study of power capture enhancement for wind turbines operating at low wind speeds

Irene Miquelez-Madariaga, Asier Díaz de Corcuera, and Jorge Elso

Abstract. At below rated operation, wind turbines must track changes in the wind speed to ensure optimal power production. Traditionally, a nonlinear feedback of the generator speed is used for that purpose. In this paper, a linear frequency domain approach to the problem is proposed, that studies the efficiency of the baseline control and the possible benefits of additional strategies. Then, a frequency domain nonlinear relation between wind and energy, that validates the results obtained for the linear model. Lastly, the benefits and costs of an optimal LIDAR based torque signal are discussed

Short summary
This work proposes an analysis framework of the control strategy for wind turbines operating at low wind speeds, based on linearized models. Traditionally, this strategy consists on obtaining a generator torque input by a nonlinear feedback of the generator speed. Besides checking for optimality, the linear framework allows to design a feedfoward controllers based on the wind measurements provided by LIDAR sensors. The validity of the linear approximation is tested against a nonlinear simulator.
