The DotX Wind Turbine Controller (DWTC) is a computer program for on-board wind turbine computers. This computer program continuously determines the pitch or blade angles (drawing, nr 3), generator torque (nr 5) and yaw angle (nr 2). It allows to maximize power output and minimize design loads.
Find out more about our wind turbine controller by downloading the demo below and running it on your windows PC.
The download contains FAST, a simulation environment for wind turbines, a 5MW NREL wind turbine (benchmark turbine), and our wind turbine controller. After downloading, please read the Quick Guide for Wind Turbine Controller Demo first to help you install and run the demo.
