IBRAHIM, R.K. and WATSON, S.J., 2015. Wind turbine simulation model for the study of combined mechanical and electrical faults. Presented at the European Wind Energy Association Conference, Paris, 17-20th Nov.
Wind turbine (WT) is a complex system comprised of many different components with different functions; it is a formidable challenge to understand the dynamic behaviour of a WT and the root cause of any disturbances, owing to the integration
of aerodynamic, mechanical and electrical components in an environment subject to significant stochastic environment
forcing. Therefore, there is a need for robust and reliable model to study the performance of WTs in terms of truly integrated electrical and mechanical responses. This paper presents a new
model for WT by using MATLAB. This model can be simulated under various operating conditions to yield valuable information
for condition monitoring and effective algorithm development for fault detection.
