As a result of more stable wind conditions and the depletion of near-shore locations, wind farms are moving farther offshore into deeper waters, challenging the current limits of offshore heavy-lift operations. This paper presents and verifies a novel frequency-domain framework to perform extensive site-specific analysis, of floating...

Vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) are considered promising solutions for urban wind energy generation due to their design, low maintenance costs, and reduced noise and visual impact compared to horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWTs). However, deploying these turbines close to densely populated urban areas often triggers considerable local...

A novel dynamic economic model-predictive control strategy is presented that improves wind farm power production and reduces the additional demands of wake steering on yaw actuation when compared to an industry state-of-the-art reference controller. The novel controller takes a distributed approach to yaw control optimisation using a free-vortex...

Actuator line modeling of wind turbines requires the definition of a free-stream velocity in a computational mesh and a regularization kernel to project the computed body forces onto the domain. Both choices strongly influence the results. In this work, a novel velocity sampling method—the so-called effective velocity model (EVM)—is...

Wind farm control can play a key role in reducing the negative impact of wakes on wind turbine power production. The helix approach is a recent innovation in the field of wind farm control, which employs individual blade pitch control to induce a helical velocity profile in a wind turbine wake. This forced meandering of the wake has turned...

Individual pitch control (IPC) is a method to mitigate periodic blade loads in wind turbines, and it is typically implemented using the multi-blade coordinate (MBC) transform, which converts the blade load measurements from a rotating frame into the non-rotating tilt axis and yaw axis. Previous studies have shown that by including an...

The combined wind speed estimator and tip-speed ratio (WSE–TSR) tracking wind turbine control scheme has seen recent and increased traction from the wind industry. The modern control scheme provides a flexible trade-off between power and load objectives. On the other hand, the Kω2 controller is often used based on its simplicity and steady-state...

Operational modal analysis (OMA) is an essential tool for understanding the structural dynamics of offshore wind turbines (OWTs). However, the classical OMA algorithms require the excitation of the structure to be stationary white noise, which is often not the case for operational OWTs due to the presence of periodic excitation caused by...

In this work, we find a reduced-order model for the wake of a wind turbine controlled with dynamic induction control. We use a physics-informed dynamic mode decomposition algorithm to reduce the model complexity in a way such that the physics of the wake mixing can be investigated and that the model itself can be easily embedded into control...

Modern industrial wind turbine controllers for partial-load region control are becoming increasingly complex by progressively relying on modeled aerodynamic characteristics. These advanced turbine controllers generally consist of a combined wind speed estimator and tracking controller, allowing for a granular trade-off between energy capture...

Near-wake effects of wind turbine models using the free-vortex wake have been studied extensively, but there is a lack of validation for such predictions in the mid to far wake. This paper presents a novel validation study using three free-vortex wake models of increasing complexity: an actuator disc, an actuator disc with rotation, and a...

Dynamic flow control strategies are raising interest for wake mitigation purposes. Among the different strategies, the so-called helix one relies on individual pitch control (IPC). The numerical simulation of the helix is thus readily performed by means of discrete-blade capturing methods. Yet, if this control strategy is considered at the...

In recent years, control techniques such as dynamic induction control (often referred to as “the pulse”) have shown great potential in increasing wake mixing, with the goal of minimising turbine-to-turbine interaction within a wind farm. Dynamic induction control disturbs the wake by varying the thrust of the turbine over time, which results in...

The performance of wind farms can substantially increase when their individual turbines deviate from their own greedy control strategy and instead also take into account downstream turbines operating in the wake. The helix approach is a recently introduced dynamic wind farm control strategy that tackles this issue by leveraging individual...

In most current offshore wind farms, the turbines are controlled greedily, neglecting any coupling by wake effects with other turbines. By neglecting these effects of aerodynamic interactions, the power production performance is substantially reduced. Besides the well-known wake steering and dynamic induction control wake control strategies, a...

The Helix approach is a control technology that reduces the wake effect in wind farms by accelerating wake mixing through individual pitch control, resulting in significant AEP gain. However, this study found that depending on its settings, the controller may increase pitch bearing damage and loads on some turbine components. Using a modified...

The development of new wind farm control strategies can benefit from combined analysis of flow dynamics in the farm and the behavior of individual turbines within one simulation environment. In this work, we present such an environment by developing a new coupling between the large-eddy simulation (LES) code GRASP and the multiphysics wind...

Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) is a fully data-driven method to extract a linear system from experimental or numerical data. It has proven its suitability for modeling wind turbine wakes, particularly those generated with Dynamic Induction Control (DIC), a method to reduce the wake deficit by enhancing its mixing with the surrounding flow....

Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)-assisted Model Predictive Control (MPC) for wind turbine control has received much attention for its ability to incorporate future wind speed disturbance information in a receding horizon optimal control problem. However, the growth of wind turbine sizes results in increasing system complexity and system...

Floating wind energy has attracted substantial interest since it enables the deployment of renewable wind energy in deeper waters. However, floating wind turbines are subjected to disturbances, predominantly from turbulence in the wind and waves hitting the platform. Wave disturbances cause undesired oscillations in speed and increase...
