Model of wind turbine system contains lots of different components and most of them have reaction to each other. This character makes the software model describing of wind turbine system become difficult. There is also another problem is that even if we modeling this system in software, its stiff system character made the real-time simulation become difficult. This paper proposes a kind of half-physical simulating method, which utilizing software model and hardware equal model together to simulate wind turbine. This method makes the modeling of this system become easier and can also achieve real-time simulation. To validate the half-physical simulation method, this paper designs a half-physical wind turbine simulation platform based on dSPACE. The experiment result shows that the half-physical platform can simulate the wind turbine in real-time successfully.
