The industry’s primary goal for state-of-the-art wind turbine controllers is to maximise the energy capture while keeping the turbine within its operational limits, such as maximum rotor speed or maximum power, which is limited by the generator capacity. To guarantee a reliable operation over the turbine’s lifetime, the structural loads need to be kept within their design limits. In the turbine and controller design process, an increase in energy is evaluated against higher loads; the result is that designers usually make specifications that increase material costs.
