The ECN Control Design Tool (CDT) is used to design wind turbine feedback control algorithms. Due to its automated code generation it combines high level development with seamless integration with aero-elastic codes and PLC hardware. TURBU greatly enhances the range of controllers that can be developed with the CDT (like individual pitch and vibration damping) by providing linearized, complete aero- and hydro-dynamic turbine models. Both software tools are implemented in Matlab/Simulink and distributed as open source.
