Physical Network Approach Applied to Wind Turbine Modeling with Simscape Language
Abstract: Model-Based Design is an efficient and cost-effective way to develop controls, signal processing, image processing, communications, mechatronics, and other embedded systems. Rather than re-lying on physical prototypes and textual specifications, Model-Based Design uses a system model as an executable specification throughout development. It supports system- and component-level design and simulation, automatic code generation, and continuous test and verification. This paper is focused firstly on the so-called model-based design and aims at presenting an up-to-date state of the art in this important field. Secondly, it develops a model based design for wind energy systems. Mathematical formulations and numerical implementations for different components of wind energy systems are highlighted with Simscape language. Finally, results are derived from simulations.
