Abstract

With the wind turbines being produced toward to large scale and light weight, the flexibility of blade, drive mechanism and tower increase apparently. Loads suffered by wind turbines during operation become increasingly intricate. Some control approaches could be used to cut down these loads in orde to expand life cycle of generating sets. Aiming at the full load operation zone above rated wind speed, conventional control target is only considering rotating speed of wind turbine and without considering the loads, such that these loads could not be restrained effectively. This paper proposes a multi-objective sliding mode pitch control approach based on a new double-power reaching law. It can control rotating speed of wind turbine and decrease balanced loads of tower, blade and drive mechanism. Simulation is implemented under Matlab/Simulink and the results verified effectiveness of the designed control scheme.
