\(\mathcal H_\infty\) static output-feedback control design with constrained information for offshore wind turbine system. (English) Zbl 1293.93345
Summary: This paper deals with \(\mathcal H\infty\) static output-feedback control design with constrained information for offshore wind turbines. Constrained information indicates that a special zero-nonzero structure is imposed on the static output-feedback gain matrix. A practical use of such an approach is to design a decentralized controller for a wind turbine. This will also benefit the controller in such a way that it is more tolerant to sensor failure. Furthermore, the model under consideration is obtained by using the wind turbine simulation software FAST. Sufficient conditions to design an \(\mathcal H_\infty\) controller are given in terms of linear matrix inequalities \((\mathcal{LMI}\text s)\). Simulation results are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed methodology for different cases of the control gain structures.
