Method of Correcting Rotor Imbalance and Wind Turbine Thereof

Résumé : The present invention relates to a method of correcting rotor imbalance and a wind turbine thereof. The correction method comprises measuring the vibrations within at least one time window and determining an imbalance factor and an imbalance phase. The values of the parameters in the equation for calculating the correction action are then updated based on the imbalance factor and an imbalance phase. A correction angle for each of the wind turbine blades is calculated using these adjusted parameters. The correction angle is used to aerodynamically balance the rotor, and a model may be used to determine the initial values of the parameters. Another imbalance factor and imbalance phase is determined based on another set of measurements. This imbalance factor is then used to calculate a mass moment for correcting the mass imbalance in the wind turbine blades. The weight and location of a balancing mass is finally calculated based on this mass moment and installed in the respective wind turbine blades.
