dc.description.abstractWith the increase of wind power capacity worldwide, researchers are focusing their attention on the operation and maintenance of wind turbines. A proper pitch controller must be designed to extend the life cycle of a wind turbine’s blades and tower. The pitch control system has two primaries, but conflicting, objectives: to maximize the wind energy captured and converted into electrical energy and to minimize fatigue and mechanical load. Four metrics have been proposed to balance these two objectives. Also, diverse pitch controller strategies are proposed in this paper to evaluate these objectives. This paper proposes a novel metrics approach to achieve the conflicting objectives with a maintenance focus. It uses a 100 kW wind turbine as a case study to simulate the proposed pitch control strategies and evaluate with the metrics proposed. The results are shown in two tables due to two different wind models are used.en
