The presented design guidelines for active aeroelastic control of PRVS wind turbines are derived by the partners of the project - Aeroelastic Stability and Control of Large Wind Turbines” (STABCON) partially funded by the European Commission (EC) under the contract NNK5-CT2002-00627. The objective of the active aeroelastic control is to investigate load alleviation potential, robustness and contradicting objectives for different controller concepts. It is important to note that the conclusions and recommendations of the presented guidelines are derived partly on the experience obtained in the Work Package 5 and 6 of the STABCON project, and partly from the large amount of common knowledge and understanding on aeroelastic control that the partners have obtained in other previous projects. The partners gratefully acknowledge the support by the EC, which is vital for the continuation of this successful long term research cooperation.
