Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-00861

AcronymWINDCONTROL

Proposal titleDESIGN OF NEW CONTROL AND MONITORING SYSTEMS FOR WIND

TURBINES

AbstractThe main objective of the project will be to design, develop and test new cost-effective

control system components to be integrated in wind turbines of more than 1 MW of

power. These new components and its specific objectives will be:  . To design a new

medium voltage (>=6,000 volt) synchronous generator, together with its frequency control

system  for 50 Hz . To design an advanced control algorithm that will act over the blade

pitch and over the main shaft, in order to  reduce mechanical and fatigue loads induced in

all of the components of the wind turbine. . To establish a methodology of data acquisition

for monitoring the real performance achieved in the machines and  for the improvements

achieved in load reduction and quality of the generated electricity
