  1. This paper describes a multi-objective ESC strategy that determines Pareto-optimal control parameters to jointly optimize wind turbine loads and power capture. The method uses two optimization objectives calculated in real time: (a) the logarithm of the average power and (b) the logarithm of the standard deviation of a measurable blade load, tower load or the combination of these loads. These two objectives are weighted in real-time to obtain a solution that is Pareto optimal with respect to the power average and the standard deviation of chosen load metric. The method is evaluated using NREL FAST simulations of the 5-MW referencemore »turbine. The results are then evaluated using energy capture over the duration of the simulation and damage equivalent loads (DEL) calculated with MLife.« less
