Title: CONTROL SYSTEM FOR A CLASS OF WIND TURBINES AND METHODS OF USING THE SAME
Abstract:
Systems and methods for maximizing efficiency and output performance for one or more wind turbines (10) similarly situated and positioned in a geographical site (1). The system includes at least a controller (200) operably connected to the wind turbines and sensors (300) positioned in or proximate to the site for monitoring environmental conditions. The controller receives operation and performance information for each wind turbine and based on the received information establishes an operational parameter that is set as a baseline parameter for adjusting any underperforming wind turbines operational parameters.
