The Model Predictive Controller is designed for a 5MW variable-speed pitch-regulated wind turbine for three operating points – below rated wind speed, just above rated wind speed, and above rated wind speed. At each operating point, the controllers are designed based on two different linear models of the same wind turbine to investigate the impact of using different control design models (i.e. the model used for designing a model-based controller) on the control performance.
