Abstract

The trend towards large multi-MW wind turbineshas given new impetus to the development of wind turbine controllers.Additional objectives are being placed on the controllermaking the specification of the control system more complex. A new toolbox, which assists with most of the control design cycle,has been developed. Its purpose is to assist and guide the control system designer through the design cycle, thereby enabling faster design. With the choice of control strategy unrestricted,the toolbox is sufficiently flexible to support the design processfor the aforementioned more complex specifications.
