The replacement of conventional generation units with variable renewable energy sources could have a negative impact on the balance of supply and demand of electricity. Moreover, since the variable renewable energy sources are inverter based and therefore decoupled from the grid, the overall grid inertia will decrease. To solve this problem, the...

Floating wind turbines despite the the potential to harness energy from deep offshore areas where higher average wind speeds face challenges in terms of competitiveness. One approach to raising the competitiveness of a wind farm is to mitigate efficiency losses resulting from the wake effect. This report focuses on the combination of three...

Green hydrogen is expected to play a crucial role in the energy transition as it can be utilised for both storage purposes and as fuel for hard-to-abate sectors. One of the possible configurations for producing green hydrogen is by means of a central offshore hydrogen production platform powered by offshore wind energy. Producing hydrogen...

Solar and wind will displace fossil fuels as the main source of energy in a net-zero world. However, renewable energy sources provide intermittent power, hence an energy carrier that enables the balancing of demand and supply is needed. Here green hydrogen comes in place. <br/>In addition, the demand for green hydrogen is expected to rise in the...

Recently, there has been an increase in interest in floating wind turbines that are located offshore. These turbines allow for the harvesting of the power of the wind far offshore, where wind speeds are often higher.<br/><br/>Compared to their fixed counterparts, floating wind turbines allow for a certain mobility after the installation. This...

Producing hydrogen from renewable energy sources will play a pivotal role in the energy transition. It can reduce emissions in hard-to-abate sectors and be used for grid balancing services. The energy industry is looking into multiple different system configurations to produce green hydrogen. One such system is an offshore stand-alone wind...

Offshore wind farms designed solely for hydrogen production are promising solutions for maximizing wind energy conversion, decarbonizing industries that cannot directly utilize electricity, and reducing the need for additional grid reinforcements. Furthermore, floating offshore wind turbines enable the capture of wind resources in deeper waters....

The potential gain in energy production and profit by improving the placements of turbines within a wind farm is driving interest. However, finding the optimal placements provides a complex problem. A large number of inter-dependent design variables create a design space that is difficult to solve. Therefore there is much attention for offshore...

The objective of the thesis was to evaluate the cost reductions and tower design when production costs are included in the design process of an offshore wind turbine tower. First, a tower cost model had to be developed. Then, based on the findings, a cost optimization model was built with the tower design software from Siemens Gamesa Renewable...

One of the major challenges that the world currently faces is the energy transition. The aim of most countries worldwide is to reduce their carbon footprint, in order to slow climate change. Fossil fuel powered energy generation is replaced with an increasing share of variable renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy. Because of...

A lack of knowledge on the economic feasibility and optimal design and operation of offshore hybrid wind-hydrogen parks is identified by utility companies and grid operators. This study reviews the techno-economic optimisation of an offshore wind-hydrogen park from a developer’s perspective and specifically considers the electrolyser technology...

An idea was proposed to allow an autonomous drone to have indefinite flight times over the ocean by applying renewable energy technologies and theory to generate electricity in flight. This is considered less as a way to save energy, but to permit the use of such a drone from a ship not capable of safely retrieving it. One novel component of...

In the current world, fossil fuels and non-renewable energy sources are being phased out and renewable energies are taking their place. Electrical energy from these renewable energies are more difficult to store than fossil fuels. Transportation and feedstock for industries can also not always be supplied through electricity. Here, hydrogen has...

Wind farm layouts in industry show a range of patterns with an overall trend from regular to irregular patterns over time. Wind farm layout optimisation studies in literature generally result in irregular wind turbine patterns. Review of existing literature shows that the performance of irregular and regular wind farm layouts has not been...

The rapid growth in world population and increasing demands have led to the lack of fresh water, taking a toll on several of earths reserves, mainly the fresh water supply reserves. Water stress deters economic growth, leads to conflicts and has a direct impact on the health of humans. Studies show the trends in the<br/>increase of water...

Currently, the design approach in the wind industry is to perform sequential optimization of different disciplines like wake aerodynamics, turbine, support structure, etc., which might fail to capture the interactions between these disciplines, leading to a sub-optimal design. Literature suggests that a Multi-disciplinary Design Analysis and...
