Maximum Power Point Tracking and Protection Against Excessive Wind Torque

All modern wind turbines are endowed with a maximum power point control and tracking systems that ensure the optimal operation of the wind turbine. To achieve maximum conversion, the turbine must necessarily operate at an optimum tip speed ratio which to a very large extent depends on the variation of the power coefficient with respect […]

Quasi-steady Aerodynamic Loads on Flexible Rotor Blades

The blade velocity components in the blade fixed undeformed body coordinates at a point x from the blade root are (4.10.1) In the above, [uvw] are the elastic translational displacements, vin in the total inflow velocity. If T is the transformation from the undeformed to the deformed coordinates, the blade velocity components in the deformed […]
