Thursday, 19 November 2015
09:00 - 10:30 Control & LiDAR
Turbine technology  
Onshore      Offshore    

Room: Montmartre

Novel approaches to balancing competing and multivariable control objectives, including results from field tests   

  • LiDAR-assisted feedforward control algorithms
  • An adaptive data processing technique for LiDAR-assisted control
  • Advanced H∞ controllers 

Learning objectives

  • Delegates will be able to list LiDAR technologies
  • Delegates will be able to identify how LiDAR-assisted control can be developed, independent of turbine
  • Delegates will be able to explain alternative approaches to designing multivariable control

Presenter's biography

Biographies are supplied directly by presenters at EWEA 2015 and are published here unedited

Iciar Font joined Alstom Wind (GE Renewables Energy since the 1st of November) in September 2007 as Reliability Engineer. In 2009 she joined the R&D Closed-Loop Control team, becoming in 2014 Technical Leader Coordinator. She is responsible for the design of load mitigation strategies for the 3.0MW platform, as well as for control validation in wind turbine prototypes. She is involved in several R&D projects. She is leading the development and integration of Robust Control on Alstom Turbines. Iciar graduated in Industrial Engineering at the Polytechnical University of Barcelona. In 2004 she fulfilled a PDEng degree in Mechatronics at the Technical University of Eindhoven.
