  1. 1. Windstorms in Sweden - variations and impacts

    Author : Carin Nilsson; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; climate impact; geostrophic wind; Gudrun; Anatol; wind throw; forest damage; storm damage; Sweden; wind climate; windstorm;

    Abstract : Windstorms have caused severe damage on several occasions in Sweden during the last century. A general concern about future projections of climate extremes has raised questions on the variations and impacts of windstorms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Relationships between Atmospheric Circulation and Wind Erosion in Southern Sweden and Australia

    Author : Marie Ekström; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; klimatologi; Physical geography; geomorphology; Geologi; fysisk geografi; physical geography; Geology; sea level pressure; atmospheric circulation; erosivity; wind erosion; wind climatology; Scania; Australia;

    Abstract : Wind erosion is a serious threat to soil resources as it causes depletion of the fine fractions that may result in a less fertile soil. Wind erosion encompasses several processes of which many are related to climate variables. To date, there is little work performed on how wind erosion relates to climate and climate change.

  3. 3. Modeling of PMSM Full Power Converter Wind Turbine with Turn-To-Turn Fault

    Author : Joachim Härsjö; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; turn-to-turn; full power converter wind turbine; permanent magnet synchronous machine PMSM modeling; fault detection.; fault; Wind turbine modeling; Wind energy;

    Abstract : Over the past several years the number of renewable energy installations has shown a strong increase rate. Due to the ambition to close down fossil and nuclear power plants, this rate of increase is not expected to decline during the coming decades. In particular, wind energy represents one of the most dominant renewable energy sources. READ MORE

  4. 4. Supporting Management of the Risk of Wind Damage in South Swedish Forestry

    Author : Erika Olofsson; Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; decision support; uncertainty; probability; wind climate; tree growth; forest management; spatial planning; topography; climate change; adaptation; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Private forest owners in southern Sweden consider wind damage to be one of the most problematic risks from an economic perspective. A potential climate change also raises the question of the possible impact of such a climate change on the risk of wind damage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Load and Risk Based Maintenance Management of Wind Turbines

    Author : Pramod Bangalore; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optimization; wind energy.; supervisory control and data acquisition SCADA ; condition monitoring system CMS ; Artificial neural networks ANN ; maintenance strategy; maintenance planning; maintenance management; life cycle cost;

    Abstract : The cost of maintenance is a considerable part of the total life cycle cost in wind turbines, especially for offshore applications. Research has shown that some critical components account for most of the downtime in the wind turbines. READ MORE
