Welcome to the Aeolus website
Aeolus is an European research project funded by the European Commission under the IST framework programme 7 for Information and Communication Technology, ICT. The main goal of Aeolus is to research and develop models that allow real-time predictions of flows and incorporate measurements from a set of spatially distributed sensor devices. In Aeolus we will use the flow information as a basis for new control paradigms that acknowledge the uncertainty in the modelling and dynamically manage the flow resource in order to optimise specific control objectives.
Tutorial Training Workshop
A two day workshop on control systems design for wind power generation is to be held during May 2011 in Glasgow. This is intended to provide a tutorial introduction to the control techniques involved in wind turbines and also an overview of the current state of the art. The workshop is organised by ISC Ltd., AEOLUS partners will contribute to the event. For more information and registration see the ACTC website.
One of the project outcomes is a simulation toolbox aimed at providing a fast wind farm Matlab/Simulink simulation environment for development of wind farm control algorithms. The toolbox provides simple turbine models along with wind field generation and turbine wake simulation. More information on SimWindFarm.
