(54)System And Method For Controlling Wind Turbine Power Output


(57) A system (400) for use in controlling a wind turbine's power output is provided. The system includes a plurality of wind turbine controllers (200), each wind turbine controller of the plurality of wind turbine controllers operatively coupled to a respective wind turbine (100) of a plurality of wind turbines, and a site controller (415) coupled in communication with the plurality of wind turbine controllers and is configured to determine a predicted wind speed for the wind turbine, determine a current wind turbine power output, determine a predicted wind turbine power output utilizing the predicted wind speed, compare the current wind turbine power output to the predicted wind turbine power output, and adjust the wind turbine power output based on the comparison of the current wind turbine power output and the predicted wind turbine power output.
