Testing of Offshore Wind Turbine Positional Controller

A previous mathematical model of an offshore wind turbine was established and then, a positional controller was designed and simulated for a single Wind Turbine in order to provide movement around an area using the force of air that acts on the wind turbine. The goal of my research project is to validate this Position Controller by testing its performance in a real offshore wind turbine system in a controlled environment provided by the host university. By achieving this goal, we will be capable of modifying and controlling the position large-scale offshore wind turbines. This will lead to my second objective that consists on controlling the position of a group of wind turbines, called Wind Turbine Farm, been able to control each wind turbine simultaneously and independently.
