Monitoring and optimising turbine performance are important tasks of a wind energy operator. However, monitoring activities are expensive and the current state-of-the-art in this field could be improved. A newly developed Avent five-beam Lidar was tested and the impact of heterogeneity on Lidar measurements was analysed. Also, the effect of...

Wake effects in wind farms are a major source of power production losses and fatigue loads on the rotors. It has been demonstrated that in large wind farms the only source of kinetic energy to balance that extracted by the turbines is the vertical transport of the free-stream flow kinetic energy from above the wind-turbine canopy. This chapter...

Wind assessment of new locations prior to the installation of wind turbines is an established process. However, this process is still very costly. The common way to measure offshore wind profiles is the usage of met masts, which get more expensive with increasing water depth and hub height. Recently, wind measurement LiDARs are installed on...

The leading edge inflated (LEI) surf-kite is a suitable wing design for airborne wind energy (AWE) power generation because the bridling and leading edge design allow the wing to be de-powered while retaining good steer-ability. Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) modelling is required to capture the flight behavior of an LEI kite, due to it's...

The main driver of developments in the wind energy sector is not the absolute maximization of energy capture, but the reduction of the Cost of Energy (CoE). More and more research is carried out to investigate control of the air flow to reduce fatigue loads, structural requirements, and apply novel control strategies to ultimately reduce this...

Due to fierce competition on the electricity market, many wind energy related research projects are currently aimed at cost reduction. In order to establish cost reduction, more and more wind turbines are being clustered in (offshore) wind farms. Major drawback of wind farms however, is the energy production loss due to aerodynamic wake...

The market share of wind energy is related to many factors, including politics, social acceptance and financial feasibility. In light of reducing the Levelised Energy Cost (LEC) generated from wind energy, power company Vattenfall is continuously looking for new ways of monitoring and improving wind turbine yield. Recent publications have shown...
