The monograph presents a radical assurance of wind turbine regulate, including:
• an summary of the rules of wind power conversion;
• the control-oriented modelling of wind turbines;
• an in-depth research of the most typical regulate strategies;
• the layout of LPV gain-scheduled controllers for either mounted- and variable-pitch, variable-speed wind turbines.
Wind Turbine regulate Systems is essentially meant for researchers and scholars with a regulate historical past wishing to extend their wisdom of wind power platforms. The booklet may be valuable to scientists within the box of regulate thought trying to follow their leading edge regulate rules to this beautiful keep watch over challenge and also will curiosity practicing engineers facing wind expertise who will enjoy the finished insurance of the theoretic regulate subject matters, the simplicity of the versions and using in most cases to be had keep watch over algorithms.
