Nowadays, the usage of renewable energy has become popular. For the wind energy, as the wind turbine getting larger, more wind energy can be extracted. However, wind turbine components also became bulkier and hence increased the cost of installation. Furthermore, loads on the larger rotor also increased and made its life span shorter. As a result, the aim of the project is to investigate the implementation of individual pitch control (IPC) for alleviating wind turbine blade loads and then increase the cost effectiveness. This study covers the operation of variable wind speed with different controllers, namely pitch control, torque control and IPC. The result will corporate the implementation of proportional-integral-derivative controller (PID) into the torque and pitch control as well as the direct-quadrature (d-q) transformation for IPC.
