This paper is devoted to solve the problem of stall flutter suppression for an absolutely divergent blade of small
scale wind turbine. The blade is specially designed with absolutely divergent motions for the purpose of determining the
most effective methods of active control for stall flutter suppression. A 2-DOF blade section is considered, with a
simplified stall nonlinear aerodynamic model being applied. H-infinity mixed-sensitivity synthesis method with a new
three-weight regulation is designed to control the time-domain instability of aeroelastic equations, with a third weight
being chosen to weight complementary sensitivity for tracking problems and noise attenuation to robust stabilization in Hinfinity
control. Effects on flutter suppression are investigated based on different structural and external parameters.
Apparent effects of H-infinity mixed-sensitivity method are displayed in the paper, when the other common intelligent
control methods fail. The research provides a control way for absolutely divergent turbine blade motions.
