Modeling, control and design of extreme scale wind turbines
Wind turbines are among the top renewable energy producers, having carved out a large chunk of the renewable energy market as a result of their economic viability and the abundant wind resource available throughout the United States and world. This green push over the past two decades has seen the nominal size of wind turbine rotors increase nearly three fold, being one of the main contributors to the economic viability of wind energy. This increase in rotor size has not been realized without advances in available sensors, actuators, and control systems responsible for maintaining and operating ...
