  1. 1. Vertical Axis Wind Turbines Tower Dynamics and Noise

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala universitet

    Author : Erik Möllerström; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VAWT; H-rotor; eigenfrequency; semi-guy-wired tower; noise emission; sound power level;

    Abstract : Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have with time been outrivaled by the today common and economically feasible horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs). However, VAWTs have several advantages such as the possibility to put the drive train at ground level, lower noise emissions and better scaling behavior which still make them interesting for research.

  2. 2. A Generator Perspective on Vertical Axis Wind Turbines

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Bülow; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VAWT; PM generator; Wind power; Stator core loss;

    Abstract : The wind energy conversion system considered in this thesis is based on a vertical axis wind turbine with a cable wound direct drive PM generator. Diode rectifiers are used to connect several such units to a single DC-bus and a single inverter controls the power flow from the DC-bus to a utility grid. READ MORE

  3. 3. Noise, eigenfrequencies and turbulence behavior of a 200 kW H-rotor vertical axis wind turbine

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erik Möllerström; Uppsala universitet.; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära; VAWT; H-rotor; eigenfrequency; semi-guy-wired tower; noise emission; sound power level; microphone array; turbulence intensity; power curve;

    Abstract : Vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have with time been outrivaled by the today more common and economically feasible horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWTs). However, VAWTs have several advantages which still make them interesting, for example, the VAWTs can have the drive train at ground level and it has been argued that they have lower noise emission.

  4. 4. Grid Connection of Permanent Magnet Generator Based Renewable Energy Systems

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Senad Apelfröjd; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VAWT; H-rotor; Tap Transformer; Cascaded H-bridge Multi-Level; Renewable Energy; Wind power; Wave power; Marine Current Power; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Renewable energy is harnessed from continuously replenishing natural processes. Some commonly known are sunlight, water, wind, tides, geothermal heat and various forms of biomass. The focus on renewable energy has over the past few decades intensified greatly. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vertical Axis Wind Turbines Electrical System and Experimental Results

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jon Kjellin; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
