Charting hyperlocal wind using a drone is a challenge of increased attention as it unlocks potential in a variety of fields. In context of the METeo Sensors In the Sky project, this study proposes a method to estimate the magnitude and direction of wind using a quadcopter in hover and cruise without a dedicated wind sensor. Only on-board sensors...

Offshore wind is a rapidly maturing renewable energy technology and is expected to play a central role in future energy systems. It has the potential to generate more than 420,000 TWh per year worldwide, an amount approximately equal to eighteen times the global electricity demand today. While many of the most abundantly resourceful sites are at...

Wind estimation plays an important role in many aspects of our world, both for nowcasting and forecasting. This is also true for aircraft flight routes; where wind field knowledge can contribute to flight planning and safety. Aircraft can relay flight information back to ground-based receivers, from which local wind measurements can be derived....

Leading Edge Erosion is a major concern for the wind energy industry as it affects the aerodynamic efficiency of wind turbine blades and, therefore, the power generated. Hail impact on the leading edge could significantly damage the protective layer and the composite substrate. The focus of this research study is to investigate the effect of...

The Dutch government has the ambition to be climate neutral by 2050. An important pillar to realizing this ambition is to place large numbers of wind turbines in the North Sea. The Dutch cabinet decided in 2022 to realize around 21 GW offshore wind capacity in 2030, but the offshore wind demand in the Netherlands after 2030 remains uncertain....

To mitigate spring frost damage, fruit farmers use wind machines to mix warm overlying air down to the vegetation. Up to this point, studies on wind machine efficiency have focused on air temperatures. The temperature of different plant organs during operation remains unknown, while critical for the actual degree of frost damage. With...

The vector field method was originally proposed to guide a single fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) towards a desired path. In this work, a non-uniform vector field method is proposed that changes in both magnitude and direction, for the purpose of achieving formations of UAVs. As compared to related work in the literature, the...

Meshed offshore grids (MOGs) present a viable option for a reliable bulk power transmission topology. The station-level control of MOGs requires faster dynamics along with multiple objective functions, which is realized by the model predictive control (MPC). This paper provides control, and protection design for the Modular Multilevel...

The expansion of the offshore wind industry in areas with high seismicity has led to engineering challenges related to the design of the offshore wind turbines (OWTs). Monopiles, i.e., tubular steel piles of large outer diameter, low aspect ratio (penetration depth over outer diameter), and relatively thin pile wall, are traditionally the...

Although several previous studies have reported a potential drag-reducing effect of dimpled surfaces in turbulent boundary layers, there is a lack of replicability across experiments performed by different research groups. To contribute to the dialogue, we scrutinize one of the most studied dimple geometries reported in the literature, which...

As renewable energy sources such as wind farms become dominant, new challenges emerge for operating and controlling them. Traditionally, wind farm control aims to dispatch power set-points to individual turbines to maximize energy extraction and, thus, their usage as assets. Yet, grid balance and frequency support are fundamental in presence...

During atypical droughts, power systems with a heavy reliance on hydropower risk increased greenhouse gas emissions if they are balanced with fossil-fired generation. This work investigates the role of offshore wind energy in reducing the vulnerability of power systems dependent on such hydrological patterns, thereby eliminating this emission...

Decarbonization of ports is a major goal to reduce their global carbon footprint. The port of Hvide Sande is located on the coast of the North Sea in Denmark and it has the potential to utilize various renewable energy sources. Wind and solar thermal parks are already installed there. Wave energy is an alternative to solar and wind energies and...

The aerodynamic behaviour of a pitched baseball depends on the combination of the translational velocity, the rotational velocity in combination with the rotation axis and the seam positions. For small spin parameters the effect of seam positions dominates the Magnus effect. This study focusses on a visual understanding of the seam position by...

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...
