Plant Control

Wind power drive train ET 222

  • low-speed electric motor simulates wind rotor

  • generator with adjustable electrical load

  • torque measurements on drive and generator

Operating behaviour of wind turbines ET 224

  • conversion of kinetic energy into electrical energy

  • power coefficient and tip-speed ratio

  • study how torque and speed affect the efficiency of the gearbox and generator

  • study how wind speed and rotor blade angle affect the typical torque characteristic of a wind rotor

  • power limitation by controlling speed and rotor blade angle

  • familiarisation with wind-guided turbine control in autonomous mode
