The present work describes the results obtained from a nonlinear PID control (NPID) approach for the pitch control with top tower active damping of a large wind turbine. The control algorithm is implemented by using a well-known approach based on hyperbolic secant functions. A nonlinear PID controller and a nonlinear P controller are used for the collective pitch control and the active tower damping, respectively. As simulation platform, the 5-MW reference turbine developed by NREL and the software FAST are used. Results show that the NPID approach can provide significant improvements in the control performance in comparison to the classic control approach, in particular when the wind speed goes far from its rated value.
