Electric Load-Brake Control for a Small Wind-Turbine Operating in Mountainous Winds

Electric Load-Brake Control for a Small Wind-Turbine Operating in Mountainous Winds The aim of the present study is to contribute to the operation and control of wind turbines situated in mountainous areas, which often suffer from over-speed due to highly gusty mountainous winds with high shear. By adding an electric load-brake to conventional pitch control we can suppress over-speed and increase power production. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Wind Engineering SAGE

Abstract

The aim of the present study is to contribute to the operation and control of wind turbines situated in mountainous areas, which often suffer from over-speed due to highly gusty mountainous winds with high shear. By adding an electric load-brake to conventional pitch control we can suppress over-speed and increase power production.
