Offshore wind energy is a fast-growing sector in the energy industry, and the cost of electricity per kilowatt-hour from offshore wind is decreasing significantly. Until now, offshore wind turbines are mainly installed on bottom-mounted foundations, which are economically feasible in shallow waters. This factor has limited the development of...

The field of Airborne Wind Energy is concerned with harvesting high-altitude wind power; the corresponding group in Delft, in particular, is investigating the suitability of a kite for this purpose. Due to the high complexity that such a system ensues, it is of interest to have a fundamental understanding of the critical aero-elastic modes of...

The current wind turbine design tools are based on aerodynamic simulations using blade element momentum (BEM) codes to calculate loads and power, see for instance the tools HAWC2, Bladed or FAST. This engineering method is computationally efficient, but theoretically valid only for steady two dimensional flow in non-yawed conditions. <br/><br/...

The wake geometry of a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) is unlike the standard Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT). The blades of the turbine continuously passes through its own wake, creating complex wake-body interactions such as flow separation and dynamic stall, and convectional grid-based numerical method which is capable of describing...

The kite power group at TU Delft is currently researching the use of leading edge inflatable (LEI) kites for use in power generation. A thorough understanding of the aeroelastics of these kites is paramount to the development of system simulation models and optimum kite and system designs. The current lack of understanding is therefore seen as a...
