In the current state of model-based wind farm flow control, the implementation of yaw-based wake steering based on steady-state models has demonstrated potential for improving wind farm power production. However, for realistic, time-varying wind directions, the dynamics of wake propagation may impact the effectiveness of wake redirection. This...

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...

Maximizing the extraction of energy from wind farms with ever higher densities is becoming increasingly more important in order to achieve climate targets and simultaneously preserve nature. Improving the yield of a wind farm can be achieved by optimizing the layout, applying control, especially wake steering through yaw control has shown great...

Offshore wind farms suffer substantial energy losses due to the interference of wind turbine wakes, with estimates indicating losses of approximately 10%. This thesis aims to advance the state of the art of wind farm flow control techniques for maximizing wind farm power performance. Wind farm flow control can be divided into three categories:...

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...

This thesis sets out to improve the physical grounding and predictive accuracy of cumulative wake effect modelling within wind farms with yawed turbines. It derives an analytical solution for the lateral velocity field within a wind farm and compares its predictions to those of computational fluid dynamics.<br/><br/>A parametric study is...

Wind farms experience significant efficiency losses due to the aerodynamic interaction between turbines. A possible control technique to minimize these losses is yaw-based wake steering. This paper investigates the potential for improved performance of the Lillgrund wind farm through a detailed calibration of a low-fidelity engineering model...

Open-loop wake steering inconsistently improves the energy yield of wind farms in field experiments in the literature. This thesis matures wind farm control technologies for power maximization in a model-based closed-loop framework towards real-world practical applicability. Firstly, open-loop wake steering is evaluated on a commercial onshore...

Wind farms experience significant efficiency losses due to the aerodynamic interaction between turbines. A possible control technique to reduce these losses to a minimum is yaw-based wake steering. This thesis investigates the feasibility of this technique by calibrating a surrogate model called the FLOw Redirection and Induction in Steady-state...

Power optimization through wake steering and axial induction control is a well investigated topic in wind energy, which is generally proven to work. The influence of control manoeuvres on the fatigue of static components is generally discussed, but drivetrain fatigue due to wake steering and axial induction control is rarely discussed, while it...

Wind farm (WF) controllers adjust the control settings of individual turbines to enhance the total performance of a wind farm. Most WF controllers proposed in the literature assume a time-invariant inflow, whereas important quantities such as the wind direction and speed continuously change over time in reality. Furthermore, properties of the...
