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

    Author : Ali Al Sam; Strömningsteknik; []
    Keywords : 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.

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

    Author : Kai Yang; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Renewable energy; Electric power system; Wind power; Power quality; Power system harmonics; Electric Power Engineering; Elkraftteknik; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    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

  5. 5. Configuration study of large wind parks

    Author : Stefan Lundberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : production cost; PCC; power quality; offshore; HVDC; wind parks; DC DC converters; control; losses; configurations; flicker; energy capture;

    Abstract : In this thesis, layouts of various large-scale wind parks, using both AC as well as DC, are investigated. Loss modelling of the wind park components as well as calculations of the energy capture of the turbines using various electrical systems are performed, and the energy production cost of the various park configurations is determined.
