Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) pave the way to accessing deep water regions with abundant wind resources that are unreachable to bottom-fixed turbines. This technology is not widely deployed due to the increased cost of producing energy. A suitable control strategy can improve the power quality and extend the lifespan of the FOWT,...

Society is finally entering a new age of renewable energy development. For the first time it is truly conceivable to power a vast majority of global energy use with a combination of wind, solar, and other forms of low carbon, renewable power. The rise of electrification and so called ”Power to X”, where renewable energy is used to create other...

Wind farm control can play a key role in reducing the negative impact of wakes on wind turbine power production. The helix approach is a recent innovation in the field of wind farm control, which employs individual blade pitch control to induce a helical velocity profile in a wind turbine wake. This forced meandering of the wake has turned...

Individual pitch control (IPC) is a method to mitigate periodic blade loads in wind turbines, and it is typically implemented using the multi-blade coordinate (MBC) transform, which converts the blade load measurements from a rotating frame into the non-rotating tilt axis and yaw axis. Previous studies have shown that by including an...

Economic model predictive control (EMPC) has received increasing attention in the wind energy community due to its ability to trade-off economic objectives with ease. However, for wind turbine applications, inherent nonlinearities, such as from aerodynamics, pose difficulties in attaining a convex optimal control problem (OCP), by which real...

The reduction of fatigue loadings in wind turbines to increase their lifetime has become of special interest from a control viewpoint. Individual Pitch Control (IPC) is a well-known approach used to mainly mitigate periodic blade loads, and it is usually implemented with the assistance of the multi-blade coordinate (MBC) transformation, which...

To accelerate the growth of offshore wind power, its Levelised Cost Of Energy (LCOE) must be reduced. A means of reducing the LCOE of offshore wind power is by mitigating the adverse wake effect by employing Wind Farm Control (WFC) for power maximization. A recent WFC technology is the helix approach, which uses Individual Pitch Control (IPC) to...

In recent studies, the effectiveness of different so-called wake mixing strategies has been assessed in terms of wind farm power maximization. These studies show that by dynamically varying the pitch angles of a wind turbine, wake mixing can be enhanced to increase the overall power production of a wind farm. However, such strategies also...

The shipping industry is forced to reduce its emissions and underwater radiated noise in order to decrease the impact on the environment and limit global warming. Moreover, a low acoustic signature can be lifesaving for a navy ship, especially during submarine on mine threats. To be able to operate as flexible as possible under these threats, a...

Placing wind turbines together is economically advantageous. It helps in decreasing the use of land or sea space, impact on the landscape and the cost of installation and maintenance. However, placing turbines together has a downside: the aerodynamics interaction caused by the wakes can negatively influence the total electrical power production...

Wind turbines offer an appealing method for power generation. In the fight against global warming wind energy helps realise green house gas emission reduction targets. Moreover, given a globally increasing demand for energy, the role of wind energy is set to become even more important. Historically, the cost of wind energy has decreased...

The dissertation discusses different wind turbine control strategies that use pitch actuation to decrease the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of wind farms. This is achieved by either mitigating the loads experienced by individual turbines, or by enhancing wake mixing in turbines located within a wind farm. The latter strategy exploits the fact...

This paper presents the flow fields and aerodynamic loading of a two bladed H-type vertical axis wind turbine with active variable pitch for load and circulation control. Particle Image Velocimetry is used to capture flow fields at six azimuthal positions of the blades during operation, three upwind and three downwind. Flow phenomena such as...

Individual pitch control (IPC) is an effective and widely used strategy to mitigate blade loads in wind turbines. However, conventional IPC fails to cope with blade and actuator faults, and this situation may lead to an emergency shutdown and increased maintenance costs. In this paper, a fault-tolerant individual pitch control (FTIPC) scheme...

In the last decades, tremendous efforts have been put in advancements of wind turbine technology by scientific research and industrial developments. One of the focal areas has been the upscaling of turbines to increase power capacity. However, by enlarging turbine sizes, the square-cube law dictates rising costs per unit of power capacity. To...

The vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) concept in its current, fixed-pitch iteration is hindered by lower aerodynamic efficiency compared to existing horizontal axis wind turbines. Implementing a form of circulation control on the VAWT by actively pitching the blades throughout the turbine’s rotation could potentially enhance power capture...

Wind farm control using dynamic concepts is a research topic that is receiving an increasing amount of interest. The main concept of this approach is that dynamic variations of the wind turbine control settings lead to higher wake turbulence, and subsequently faster wake recovery due to increased mixing. As a result, downstream turbines...

Within this thesis influence of thrust vectoring for VAWTs, controlling the magnitude and direction of the thrust vector with respect to the freestream, is investigated through active pitch actuation. The H-type Darrieus VAWT is modelled in 2D through the actuator cylinder model with the Mod-Lin correction included. The evaluations are performed...

This thesis presents an individual tip control (IPC) system based on blade tip deflection measurements. The controller is based on novel sensor inputs which measure flapwise tip deflection distance at a high sampling rate. IPC plays a key role in reducing fatigue loads in wind turbine components. These fatigue loads are caused by differential...

<br/>Wind energy currently is one of the most attractive solutions to help in the goal of switching to a more sustainable way of energy production. To stay competitive with other forms of energy production, the reduction of the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) is an important indicator. One way of achieving this goal is by increasing the size of...
