This paper presents the preliminary study on damping of platform pitch motion of floating offshore wind turbine using adaptive individual blade pitch control. The platform pitch displacement is measured and used to derive the signal to actuate pitch of each blade independently which tries to damp the platform pitch motion. This independent blade pitch control signal is then combined with collective blade pitch control signal which is responsible for regulating the generator speed. The performance of proposed controller is compared with the baseline PID collective pitch controller and adaptive collective pitch controller.
