In a dispatchable wind power plant, turbines are free to continuously vary their power production as long as the sum of their productions meets the total power demand. Previous research has shown that this freedom can be used to reduce structural loads by allowing turbines in the plant to coordinate their power. This paper explains the mechanisms that make power coordination useful for reducing structural loads on the turbine tower and the low speed shaft. In addition, it assesses the benefits of coordination at different operating points.
