This week some CL-Windcon partners have flown to Milwaukee to attend the ACC 2018. The American Control Conference (ACC) is an annual 3-day meeting that brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners in all areas related to the engineering and science of control systems.
Our TU-Delft fellow Bart Doekemeijer participated chairing the ‘Advanced Flow Control of Wind Farms’ session. During that session, Johannes Schreiber (TUM) presented the work “Online Model Updating by a Wake Detector for Wind Farm Control (I)”, where it was explained the real-time calibration of the FLORIS model. During the ‘Energy Systems I’ session, Daan van der Hoek (ECN-TNO) made a presentation comparing single turbine down-regulation control strategies and their effects on fatigue loads.
