Dotx Wind Turbine Controller

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.

Projects (Wind Turbine Control projects)

 

Below is a list of windturbine control projects we have been and are involved in.

DotX has been involved in the development of new EWT wind turbine control systems. EWT has acquired the source code of the DotX Wind Turbine Controller. Further details are not provided due to secrecy agreements.
DotX has assisted Nordex in research & development. Further details are not provided due to secrecy agreements.
DotX has supplied 2-B energy with the DotX Wind Turbine Controller (see Products). Since then, we have developed, in cooperation with 2-B, various advanced control system improvements, resulting in major load reductions. Further details are not provided due to secrecy agreements.
DotX has assisted ECN in the research project SUSCON (=Sustained Control). This project focussed on developing new control concepts for Individual Pitch Control (IPC), handling Extreme Events (wind gusts), improved modelling by identification, improving fault detection methods and improving shutdown control.
