Improvement of design script for individual pitch control

Integrate disturbance modelling improvements in linear control design script and verify.

Objective
To incorporate disturbance modelling into our linear control design script and validate this during IPC control design optimization.

Results

  • Investigation results of IPC “phase shifts”.
  • Finalize enhanced design script.
  • Validation against full time domain turbulent wind simulations using Bladed.
  • Reporting.

Value created
This project has provided great insight and added confidence required for a new design script to be offered for both collective and IPC design as a commercial service.

Quote from DNV project expert
“This work has given us a capability to optimize complex dynamic control and loading much more rapidly.”
