Darrieus Wind Turbine Prototype Control Study Linear Quadratic Regulator
This paper focuses on control of a Darrieus vertical
axis wind turbine prototype. Throughout this work a control
strategy is proposed and a methodology is presented in order
to achieve a solid foundation for the control process. A non
linear dynamic model of the Darrieus prototype equipped with
a permanent magnet synchronous generator was developed.
The model was linearized and some controllers are developed, namely a PID controller and a Linear Quadratic Regulator. The controllers were tested in the linear and non linear models.
