Wake Control System Based on Wake Tracking
A system includes at least one processor and at least one module operable by the at least one processor to receive at least one sensor measurement. The at least one sensor measurement may include at least one of a wind speed measurement, or a wind direction measurement. The at least one module may be further operable to determine, using a stochastic filter, and based on the at least one sensor measurement, at least one predicted attribute of a wake generated by a wind turbine, the wind turbine being one of a plurality of wind turbines of a wind plant. The at least one module may be further operable to modify, based on the at least one predicted attribute of the wake, at least one wind turbine control variable for at least one wind turbine of the plurality of wind turbines and output the at least one wind turbine control variable
