Resumé

We consider the control of a multi-rotor wind
turbine consisting of two or more nacelles, each with at least
a rotor and a generator, fixed to the same load carrying
structure. We present a set of control challenges and provide
an easily accessible simulation model as a benchmark for
development of new ideas and comparison of methods for multi-
rotor control. The control objective for the multi-rotor is to
minimize the fatigue in the structure supporting the nacelles,
while maximizing generated power and observing constraints
on, e.g., rotational speed, rotor thrust, etc. We describe a
model including the basic dynamics for a four rotor turbine.
For this model an open Simulink model is made available
for download. Furthermore, we provide an animation tool for
visualization of the movement of the support structure during
simulations. As an example we design and test a controller
using the simulator. The is test completed for normal turbulence
conditions obtaining significant fatigue load reductions with a
limited power loss.
