Wind Turbine MapleSim Model - Wind Turbine S-Function - MapleSim Model Gallery

Wind Turbine

This model simulates the power generation as wind passes over blades. The goal is to stabilize the power generation by controlling the nacelle and blade pitch angle. This is done by using a dc motor to align the nacelle in the wind direction, as well as controlling the angle of attack by rotating the blades to reduce the induced drag. To convert the mechanical power to electrical power, a DC permanent magnet motor is used as a generator.
