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...

The hunt for new methods to harness wind energy is at an all-time high as wind energy quickly overtakes other renewable energy sources. Deep waters are promising alternatives with higher average wind speed (thus, higher yields) and also due to lesser availability of land on shore. Even though the design of the blades and rotor of a FOWT is...

Floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) have the potential to harness wind resources in deepwater, which is so far prohibitive for conventional approaches. This, however, comes at a cost: the platform’s extra degrees of freedom (DoFs) introduce complex aerodynamic and hydrodynamic behaviours. Therefore, FOWTs must be accurately modeled to reduce...

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...

Renewable forms of energy, and especially wind energy, have become an integral part of the energy infrastructure around the globe. However, the constant increase of installed wind capacity has put a strain on the selection of potential onshore locations for wind turbine installation. As a result, the wind industry is focusing on offshore...

The energy transition towards carbon neutrality requires a rapid electrification of all energy sectors by 2050. In the EU-27, the REPowerEU strategy, initiated in March 2022, is pursuing this target even more ambitiously. However, in order to achieve the aforementioned goals, the increasing demand for green hydrogen will...

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...

Lemij, Freek (author)
A rapid increase in global energy demand and the international objective of increasing the contribution of renewable energy to satisfy this demand have spiked the interest in offshore wind energy. Depletion of suitable locations for bottom founded turbines has led to a new chapter in offshore wind development: floating wind farms. This...

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...

A modified free-wake vortex ring model is proposed to compute the dynamics of a floating horizontal-axis wind turbine, which is divided into two parts. The near wake model uses a blade bound vortex model and trailed vortex model, which is developed based on vortex filament method with straight lifting lines assumption. By contrast, the far...
