EU H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN): "Airborne Wind Energy System Modelling, Control and Optimisation (AWESCO)"

 

This project is funded by the European Union (Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions). As part of the working package 4, we collaborate with the Institute for Electrical Drive Systems and Power Electronics (Prof. Kennel) on the task "Robust and Fault-Tolerant Low-Level Control of the Electrical Drive System". 

 

Project description

The task "Robust and Fault-Tolerant Low-Level Control of the Electrical Drive System" is about developing intelligent control schemes that are sufficiently robust to launch and land the PowerPlane, a tethered rigid-wing sailplane or kite, even at strong winds and under faulty conditions.  The study will cover all necessary steps for controller implementation, including modelling, controller design and testing.
