Wind turbine and wind farm control

Turbine technology

When: Wednesday, 3 April 2019, 10:45 - 12:00
Where: Luxua 1

Session description

The general trend in technology to more intelligent systems is also visible in Wind energy. Here, an important field is advanced wind turbine and wind farm control and the possibilities to act at both levels to improve the power production of the wind farm while extending the wind turbine life. The session will cover the next generation of smart wind turbines which collect and share information from standard and new sensors to improve online the operation and contribute to the grid regulation.
