Wind Turbine Control Methods
A wind turbine is a revolving machine that converts the kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy. This mechanical energy is then converted into electricity that is sent to a power grid. The turbine components responsible for these energy conversions are the rotor and the generator.

If you have chosen us to deliver complete switchboards and you at a later stage, should wish to manufacture the switchboards yourself, we will assist in implementing the design in your production or at a switchboard builder of your choice..
The simplest type of yaw control may be achieved through the use of the so-called passive yaw control systems which use the wind force so as to not only rotate the rotor but also orientate the wind turbine nacelle. The typical form of such systems consists of a roller bearing connecting the tower and the nacelle, along with a tail fin mounted on the nacelle which aims to apply an apt torque to the nacelle so as to turn the turbine rotor to the direction of wind. Passive yaw control offers a low cost solution which is effective mainly in small wind turbines.

Weather you are a turbine manufacturer or system integrator designing a new turbine, we can deliver a complete electrical system design including state of the art control strategy and application design to integrate all subsystems of the wind turbine. The electrical design is our core knowledge and with your turbine certifying body we ensure full conformity to the demanding IEC and ISO norms when it comes to both functionality and safety.
Designing Control Systems For Wind Turbines
• How to easily apply linear control theory to rapidly design controllers for nonlinear systems, and to verify their performance on the nonlinear system
• How to use optimization algorithms to optimize system performance with respect to multiple design requirements
• How to define supervisory logic using state machines
• How to integrate and test all of these models in a single environment to test for integration issues and test overall system performance
"You can easily put a blade into high wind, but if you don’t pitch correctly, you can destroy the turbine. Pitching is finding the right angle of the blade in the right wind condition”
