In this paper we introduce an Adaptive Disturbance Tracking Control (ADTC) Theory and make some modifications to implement it to address Region II control problem of large wind turbines. Since ADTC requires measurement of wind speed, a wind speed and partial state estimator based on linearized lower-order model of wind turbine at Region II operating point was developed. The estimated wind speed was then used with the adaptive controller and the states were used for state feedback. The combination of partial state feedback and adaptive disturbance tracking control is implemented in National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)’s 5 MW offshore wind turbine model and simulated in MATLAB/Simulink. The simulation result was then compared with existing fixed gain controller.
