Abstract The recent proliferation of converter-based power generating systems used within renewable energy sources has increased the need to consider how renewable energy sources, including wind turbines, may participate in ancillary services to ensure the security of the power grid. In this paper, we discuss a modern control methodology known as exact output regulation (EOR) and investigate its application to the problem of wind turbine provision of grid frequency support services. The EOR method assumes that both wind preview information from LIDAR measurements and the power demand curve from the grid are available in the design of the turbine control law. Our simulation study will compare the performance of EOR with a baseline controller, for the tracking of a time-varying power demand curve. Our work focuses on region 3 wind signals, however it has the capability to extend to other wind speed region. The simulations will employ the FAST simulator for a 5MW wind turbine, with wind signals generated by TurbSim. The simulations show that the LIDAR-enhanced EOR method has the potential to substantially improve power demand tracking performance, relative to a baseline controller.
