A method of controlling a wind turbine
is described. The method involves forecasting the temperature evolution of a component of the wind turbine
based upon the current operating parameters of the wind turbine
and upon a required power output; predicting from the temperature forecast a future alarm event caused by the temperature of the component exceeding a first threshold level or falling below a second threshold level; and adjusting the operating parameters of the wind turbine
to control the temperature evolution of the component thereby to avoid or delay the predicted alarm event.
