This file contains a wind turbine model. It includes a three-dimensional mechanical model of the tower, nacelle, and blades modeled in SimMechanics, hydraulic pitch actuators, electrical yaw actuators, a simple generator and electrical grid model. There are a number of supporting models included that 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.
To use this example, you will need to read the README.txt file. Run the script, “startup_Wind_Turbine.m” to get started.
