SOWFA Super-Controller: A High-Fidelity Tool for Evaluating Wind Plant Control Approaches

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper presents a new tool for testing wind plant controllers in the Simulator for Offshore Wind Farm Applications (SOWFA). SOWFA is a high-fidelity simulator for the interaction between wind turbine dynamics and the fluid flow in a wind plant. The new super-controller testing environment in SOWFA allows for the implementation of the majority of the wind plant control strategies proposed in the literature.
