Offshore wind farms in deep water are becoming an attractive prospect for harnessing renewable energy and reducing dependence on fossil fuels. One area of major concern with offshore wind turbines is stability control. The same strong winds that give deep water turbines great potential for energy capture also pose a threat to stability, along with potentially strong wave forces. We examine development of state space controllers for active stabilization of a spar-buoy floating turbine. We investigate linear state feedback with a state observer and evaluate response time and disturbance rejection of decoupled SISO controllers.
