  1. 1. Wind Turbine Drive Train System Dynamics ; Multibody Dynamic Modelling and Global Sensitivity Analysis

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Saeed Asadi; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Global sensitivity analysis; Model validation; Multibody dynamics system mod-elling; Gearbox modelling; Kinematic constraints; Bearing defects detection; Wind turbine drive train dynamics; Floating reference frame;

    Abstract : To facilitate the design and production of highly efficient and reliable wind turbine drive trains, this thesis deals with the mathematical modelling and analysis of drive train system dynamics. The drive train is considered as the subsystem of the wind turbine that transfers mechanical power from the rotor hub to the generator, and thereby plays an important role in the system dynamics and the efficiency of wind turbine operation.

  2. 2. Direct Driven Generators for Vertical Axis Wind Turbines

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sandra Eriksson; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; synchronous generator; wind power; vertical axis wind turbine; simulations; experiments; finite element method; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Wind power is a renewable energy source that is increasingly used all over the world. Most wind turbines have a horizontal axis of rotation but a few have a vertical axis of rotation. The concept presented in this thesis is a straight-bladed vertical axis wind turbine with a direct driven cable-wound permanent magnet synchronous generator. READ MORE
