Speech title: Theoretical research and practice in intelligent control design for wind energy

Abstract: Wind energy has been considered to be a promising alternative to current fossil-based energies. Large-scale wind turbines have been widely deployed to substantiate the renewable energy strategy of various countries. In this talk, challenges faced by control community for high reliable and efficient exploitation of wind energy are discussed. Advanced controllers are designed to (partially) overcome problems, such as uncertainty, intermittence, and intense dynamics. Theoretical results and attempts for practice are both present.
