Abstract

The upstream wind is known as the main source of disturbance to the wind turbine. Therefore, having the wind information before it hits the turbine, allows the wind turbine controller to take necessary actions to proper rejection of the disturbances. Several advanced control methods have been proposed to exploit the LIDAR wind measurements to enhance the wind turbine control. To date, the Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC), has been one of the most successful methods in using wind data to improve the control performance. However, due to the immense computational burden, its real-time application is still challenging. Very recently, an implementation of the Exact Output Regulation (EOR..
