This study is the design of a pitching blade control system for the National Swedish Board for Energy Source Development KaMeWa wind turbine. Full state controllers are designed utilizing optimal control theory to reduce blade and tower vibration, power oscillations, and improve gust response. The results show that substantial vibration reduction can be obtained with the existing pitch actuators installed presently on the machine.
