Abstract

A novel strategy to reduce unwanted swings and motions in floating wind turbines is presented. At above rated wind speeds, the platform, on which the wind turbine is mounted, causes the generator speed control loop to become unstable. The proposed strategy assures stability of the control loop by an additive adjustment of the measured generator speed using tower fictitious forces. The developed strategy is independent of the platform and wave dynamics.
