To investigate potential improvement in wind turbine control employing LIDAR measurement, pseudo-LIDAR wind speed data is produced with Bladed using a designed sampling strategy, and assessed with preliminary frequency-domain analysis. A model-inverse feed-forward controller is adapted to combine with feedback control so as to enhance pitch control performance at high wind speed. This controller is applied to an industrial-scale 5MW wind turbine model and the control performance is compared with a baseline feedback controller. Simulation study demonstrates that the combined feed-forward/feedback control scheme has improvements in reducing pitch angle variation and reduction of load relevant metrics.
