Wind energy is a fast-growing interdisciplinary field that encompasses multiple branches of engineering and science. Despite the growth in the installed capacity of wind turbines in recent years, larger wind turbines have energy capture and economic advantages, the typical size of utility scale wind turbines has grown by two orders of magnitude. Since modern wind turbines are large, flexible structures operating in uncertain environments, advanced control technology can improve their performance.The goal of this article is to describe the technical challenges in the wind industry relating to control engineering.
