Abstract
Several control strategies are proposed to improve overall performances of conventional (geared equipped) and hydrostatic offshore wind turbines. \ud \ud Firstly, to maximise energy capture of a conventional turbine, an adaptive torque control technique is proposed through simplifying the conventional extremum seeking control algorithm. Simulations are conducted on the popular National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) monopile 5-MW baseline turbine. The results demonstrate that the simplified ESC algorithms are quite effective in maximising power generation.\ud \ud Secondly, a TMD (tuned mass damper) system is configured to mitigate loads on a monopile turbine...
