A Hierarchical Wind Power Plant Supervisory Controller
FarmConners market showcases for wind farm flow control
Currently, wind farms are operated with the primary control objective to maximise power generation. As the penetration of wind energy rises, this strategy may no longer be feasible, especially if government subsidies are reduced. In such a scenario, wind farm flow control (WFFC) can offer wind...
FarmConners Market Showcases for Wind Farm Flow Control
Expert Elicitation on Wind Farm Control
Wind farm control is an active and growing field of research in which the control actions of individual turbines in a farm are coordinated, accounting for inter-turbine aerodynamic interaction, to improve the overall performance of the wind farm and to reduce costs. The primary objectives of wind...
Launch of the FarmConners Wind Farm Control benchmark for code comparison
Careful validation of the modelling and control actions is of vital importance to build confidence in the value of coordinated wind farm control (WFC). The efficiency of flow models applied to WFC should be evaluated to provide reliable assessment of the performance of WFC. In order to achieve that...
