  • Patent number: 10443567
    Abstract: A fast-converging and reliable method for estimating a wind speed at, for example, a wind turbine comprising a rotor carrying a set of variable pitch angle wind turbine blades. The estimated wind speed is iteratively derived using a wind turbine rotor rotational speed, a turbine blade pitch angle, and a derived initial estimated wind speed. The initial estimated wind speed is based on the rotational speed and an initial tip speed ratio. The initial tip speed ratio is selected to be a value greater than a minimum tip speed ratio, wherein the minimum tip speed ratio defines a control region stability limit as a function of the pitch angle. Thus, for a given pitch angle, a minimum tip speed ratio is derived as a limit or boundary point between a stable control region and an unstable control region.

  • Patent number: 9122266
    Abstract: In a method for collision-free interaction between a machine having mobile machine elements and objects in its vicinity, safety regions are established and monitored using the knowledge of the current position and the dynamic behavior. In particular, image data of the mobile machine element are recorded by means of an image acquisition system and are correlated with a database compiled in a training phase with image data of at least one mobile machine element. The database contains image data relating to a plurality of movement phases within the movement process of the machine. Using the database, both the current position of the mobile machine element is ascertained and a future position, reachable within the stopping time, is estimated. The dynamic behavior of the machine in the event of collision risk is optimized on the basis of this estimation.
