Wind Turbine Model
Updated 17 Apr 2021
This file contains a wind turbine model. It includes a three-dimensional mechanical model of the tower, nacelle, and blades modeled in Simscape Multibody, hydraulic pitch actuators, electrical yaw actuators, a simple generator and electrical grid model. Supporting models show how to develop each of the systems separately and integrate them into the overall model. The level of fidelity for each subsystem can be varied as you work through the design.
