The ambition of the TotalControl project is to develop the next generation of wind power plant (WPP) control tools, improving both WPP control itself and the collaboration between wind turbine (WT) and WPP control.

Contact person

To do this, TotalControl will use high-fidelity simulation and design environments that include detailed time resolved flow field modelling, nonlinear flexible multi-body representations of turbines, and detailed power grid models.

The project is carried out by a consortium consisting of eight partners.

  • DTU (project coordinator)
  • DNV GL
  • Equinor
  • Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult
  • Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy
  • SINTEF Energy Research
  • University of Leuven
  • Vattenfall

SINTEF Energy Research is a key partner in the project, heading WP4 Control for maximum power production, and with a leading responsibility for a number of deliverables:

  • Reference Wind Power Plant – D1.3
  • Electro-mechanical model of reference wind power plant – D1.5
  • Cost model for fatigue degradation and O&M – D2.1
  • Tower load reduction using active damping – D3.3
  • Hierarchical wind power plant supervisory controller – D4.2
  • Final Report on Electrical/Mechanical/Control Interactions in Large Wind Power Plants – D4.6

TotalControl is an EU Horizon2020 funded project, see the project homepage.
