This study presents an innovative algorithm designed to optimise the layout of floating offshore wind farms (FOWFs), addressing inter-array cable length and the number of anchor structures required. This research is particularly noteworthy as no prior work has been conducted on wind farm layout optimisation for FOWFs. The Local-Search-Inspired...

Wind turbine wakes have been a topic of intense research since the maturation of wind energy. This is justified given the complexity of the physics involved and their crucial impact on the operation of a wind turbine. Only recently though, the advancement in computational resources and the development of models like the Actuator Line Method (ALM...

Reducing the levelised cost of energy is crucial to accelerating the energy transition. To develop offshore wind solutions in greater water depths, a floating solution is required. The time-domain simulations of these Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) under wind-wave misalignment used in research and industry projects are computationally...

The development of offshore wind technology has progressed rapidly since the first offshore wind farm came to birth in 1991. During the last three decades, offshore wind has become an economically attractive option of renewable energy source for many countries to fulfill their commitment to combat the climate crisis. However, an open challenge...

As the need for abundant and reliable renewable energy increases, there is a growing interest in floating wind turbines, which would allow to harness the wind resource in areas where bottom-founded wind turbines cannot be used. However, the movements of the platform are expected to cause unsteady aerodynamics effects, including different wake...

One of the emerging technologies in sustainable energy is Floating Offshore Wind. GustoMSC designs a structure for Floating Offshore Wind, the Tri-Floater. One of the problems that need to be investigated before building the unit is wave impact loading. Wave impact occurs when a large wave hits the structure, placing large forces on the...

In offshore engineering complex simulation models are constructed for design optimization using Monte Carlo methods. These models incur large computational costs. Multi-Level Multi-Fidelity Monte Carlo is proposed as a method to reduce the computational cost of these simulations. In addition, research is conducted on the use of porous media as...

The advent of global warming has brought an increased interest in non-conventional sources of energy, one of which is nuclear energy. Threatening the almost year-round functioning of nuclear power plants are Flow-Induced Vibrations (FIV). One such mechanism, Vortex-Induced Vibration (VIV), holds importance in areas of cross flow in nuclear power...

Simulations of a spar-type floating wind turbine supporting the DTU 10 MW reference turbine under fitted atmospheric conditions are performed. Atmospheric conditions are modelled using the turbulent models recommended by the IEC: the Mann model and the IEC Kaimal and exponential coherence model. Model parameters are fitted to measurements at the...

Although significant strides have been made with regards to increasing the fuel economy of commercial passenger aircraft, the reduction of the environmental footprint remains of the utmost importance. The flow development over an aero-engine spinner will affect the velocity distribution over the fan of the engine and this affects the estimation...

Climate change, as a result from global warming, requires an energy transition: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and a radical innovation of the global energy system to proceed apace. Offshore wind is an important source of clean, renewable energy, and it plays a key role in the transition. 80% of the worldwide...
