The variation of aeroelastic system dynamics is treated as the change of time-varying aerodynamic loads along the operation trajectory of a spinning wind turbine. An Adaptive Control scheme is introduced to suppress flutter based on the proposed model. The robustness and effectiveness of Adaptive Control is shown by simulation results. For stability analysis, Adaptive Stability Theorem is proved theoretically by Kalman-Yacubovic Lemma and demonstrated numerically by certain cases.
