  1. 1. Numerical Computations of Wakes Behind Wind Farms

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Ola Eriksson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wind turbine; Wind power; Wind farm; Wakes; Long distance wakes; Farm-Farm; Farm to farm interaction; Wind farm cluster; Large Eddy simulations; LES; Actuator disc method; ACD; CFD; Ellipsys3D;

    Abstract : More and larger wind farms are planned offshore. As the most suitable build sites are limited wind farms will be constructed near to each other in so called wind farm clusters. Behind the wind turbines in these farms there is a disrupted flow of air called a wake that is characterized by reduced wind speed and increased turbulence. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wind-wave interaction effects on offshore wind energy

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Ali Al Sam; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016-11]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wind-wave; swell; atmospheric boundary layer; marine atmospheric boundary layer; atmospheric turbulence; Large-eddy simulation; actuator line; wind sea; offshore technology; wind energy; wind turbine; aerodynamic;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the investigation of the impacts of fast moving ocean surface waves on the aerodynamics of offshore wind turbines. The impacts of non-locally generated waves (swell) on the Marine Atmospheric BoundaryLayer (MABL) and thereby on offshore wind turbine aerodynamics are studied numerically by using Large Eddy Simulations and the Actuator Line Method.

  3. 3. Wind power wake modelling Development and application of an actuator disc method for industrial utilization

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nikolaos Simisiroglou; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wind power; Offshore wind farm; Wakes; Actuator Disc Method ACD ; Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD ; Reynolds Average Navier–Stokes RANS ; WindSim; PHOENICS;

    Abstract : As a wind turbine extracts energy from the wind it creates a region downstream where the wind velocity is decreased and the urbulence intensity is increased, this region is commonly called the wake region. Today’s wind farms include a large number of wind turbines position in tight layouts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Expansion Governance of the Integrated North Seas Offshore Grid

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : João Gorenstein Dedecca; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Union; expansion planning; governance; HVDC; myopic optimization; North Seas; offshore grid; offshore wind; simulation;

    Abstract : The expansion of offshore power transmission and generation in the North Seas of Europe is accelerating rapidly. This is due to several drivers, including the decarbonization and reform of the European power system, and innovations in offshore wind and high-voltage direct current transmission. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wind-turbine harmonic emissions and propagation through a wind farm

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Kai Yang; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Renewable energy; Electric power system; Wind power; Power quality; Power system harmonics; Technology - Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; Teknikvetenskap - Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik; Electric Power Engineering; Elkraftteknik; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : The increasing demand for sustainable energy is one of the driving forces behind the increasing use of wind power by means of wind-turbines in electric power systems. Modern wind turbines commonly employ variable-speed-generator technology associated with a power-electronic converter as part of the grid connection. READ MORE
