Increasing demands in decentralized power plants have focused attention on Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs). However, accessing high range of power from VAWTs is an impediment due to increased loads on the turbine blades. Here, we derive an optimal pitching action that reduces the periodic disturbance on turbine blades of VAWTs without...

The installation of floating wind farms in deeper water is encouraged by the stronger and steadier wind, the lower visibility and noise impact, the absence of road restrictions, but also the absence or shortage of shallow water. In the summer of 2009, the first large-scale floating wind turbine ”Hywind” was installed. Hywind is a spar-buoy...
