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

Dr. Kumar is currently a Control Engineer in the Turbine Engineering group at DNV GL with eight years of turbine control experience. He gained his Bachelor’s Degree in Mechatronic Engineering from the University of Auckland in 2006 and his PhD focusing on model predictive control of wind turbines in the presence of nonlinearities from the same university in 2012. On completion of his PhD Dr. Kumar joined DNV GL as a turbine control engineer and has a current focus on control of novel renewable energy systems, and the use of disturbance information in the control of renewable energy systems.
