An open-source wind turbine controller, DTU Wind Energy Controller (DTUWEC), developed by Technical University of Denmark (DTU), is presented. The DTUWEC includes many advanced features and it is publicly available to the wind energy community. It is envisioned that this research work converts the old version of Basic DTU Wind Energy Controller into a generic, powerful and robust open-source wind turbine controller with a large number of developers and users in both research institutions and industries. DTUWEC is implemented in Fortran and offers the DNV-GL Bladed/OpenFAST style interface. Because of its open-source and modular characters, researchers are able to couple DTUWEC with different aero-elastic simulation codes to investigate the effect of different controllers on the wind turbine structural loads and power output, and to collaborate for future potential improvements.
