Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING POWER OUTPUT OF A WIND TURBINE DURING AN OPERATIONAL CONSTRAINT
Abstract:
The present disclosure is directed to a method for optimizing power production of a wind turbine. The method includes determining at least one operational constraint for the wind turbine. The method also includes operating the wind turbine with at least one operational constraint being activated. Further, the method includes varying a tip speed ratio for the wind turbine while the at least one operational constraint is activated so as to maximize a power coefficient of the wind turbine.
