PC-Control: Well prepared wind turbines on land or at sea!
PC- and EtherCAT-based Control of hardware-in-the-loop test stand for wind farm controllers
Advanced wind farm control systems support the stable operation of the electrical grid. Hardware-in-the-loop tests are essential for fast and cost-effective commissioning of controllers in the field or at sea in the case of off-shore wind farms. Such tests are also very helpful for controller development. To this end a hardware-in-the-loop test stand for wind farm controllers was developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES) in Kassel, Germany. The wind farm controller and the wind farm communication system can be integrated as hardware in a real-time simulator, which models the behavior of the wind farm and the grid. The development of the test stand was supported by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The test stand was developed in cooperation with wind turbine manufacturer Areva Wind.
