An open source software environment for the design of wind turbine controlalgorithms has been created. The modularisation enables to modify and to add or remove functionality in a user friendly way. This software environment established the point of departue for the development of specific control algorithms within the project. It consistst of so called functions and scripts in the MATLAB programming language. These MATLAB modules support modelling, control synthesis and data and signal handling. They thus enable a user to implement a modular parametrisation procedure for the control algorithm and a Simulink compatible evaluation of the designed controller. The software has been made typical for the variable speed windturbines with pitch control. However, other wind turbine concepts can also be dealt with.
