In an era where global energy consumption has been rising steadily, the demand and supply of renewable energy sources have become increasingly important. Offshore wind is a promising renewable energy source, which has been actively developed in the last decades in the form of bottom-founded offshore wind, bound to shallow water. Floating...

Wind turbine blades have a service life of around 20 to 25 years and are then decommissioned while generally still having excellent structural performance and high-value material properties. Currently, the recycling options for the fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite components that make up the blade are limited, so most blades are either...

The European energy transition policies aim to mitigate the effects of climate change by moving away from fossils and promoting both onshore and offshore renewable energy technologies. Although onshore renewables are driving the transition so far, policymakers believe that in order to achieve the targets, the power grid must have access to the...

In response to the urgent need for renewable energy amidst the escalating impacts of global warming, this study delves into the forefront of wind energy research, particularly focusing on the innovative Multi-Rotor System (MRS). The MRS concept offers a promising departure from the prevailing trend of scaling up traditional turbines, instead...

Wind energy is one of the most important renewable energy sources, effectively addressing climate change issues and promoting sustainable development on a global scale. Blade failures may cause long shut-down times and may present a safety hazard. Continuous and real-time monitoring of the blade conditions is helpful for finding blade damage at...

Offshore wind energy is expanding rapidly as governments aim for net-zero emissions, with monopiles and jackets being the primary foundation methods for offshore wind turbines (OWTs). Supply chains, heavier turbines and deeper waters influence the efficiency of jacket foundations. This research considers a jacket-founded OWT. The development of...

In urban areas, vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) show promise due to their omnidirectional design, addressing challenges faced by traditional horizontal-axis turbines (HAWTs). Despite significant progress in urban VAWTs, extensive multidisciplinary research is needed to optimise their efficiency and use in such environments. <br/><br/>This...

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,...

Current service and installation activities for offshore wind turbines are carried out by jack-up vessels, which eliminate wave disturbances to a large extent. The use of these vessels imposes several disadvantages, including high operational costs and the limitation of operating in restricted water depths. An alternative is a crane mounted on a...

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...

Due to increasing environmental concerns and global energy demand, the development of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is on the rise. FOWTs offer a promising solution to expand wind farm deployment into deeper waters with abundant wind resources. However, their harsh operating conditions and lower maturity level compared to fixed...

This research investigates the dynamic response of offshore wind turbine (OWT) systems subject to ice-structure-soil interaction (ISSI). To simulate the behavior of level ice sheets, a coupled approach involving the cohesive element method (CEM) and the finite element method (FEM) is applied. For soil-structure interaction (SSI), the Mohr...

Airborne wind energy (AWE) is an emerging renewable energy technology that uses kites to harvest winds at higher altitudes than wind turbines. Understanding how residents experience a local AWE system (AWES) is important as the technology approaches commercialization. Such knowledge can help adjust the design and deployment of an AWES to fit...

This paper presents the design, implementation, and validation of an on-blade sensor system for remote vibration measurement for low-capacity wind turbines. The autonomous sensor system was deployed on three wind turbines, with one of them operating in harsh weather conditions in the far south of Chile. The system recorded the acceleration...

To investigate the effect of force distributions of each turbine component on the power performance of the Darrieus–Savonius combined vertical axis wind turbine (hybrid VAWT), the hybrid VAWT is modeled as idealized turbine under various force distributions. The goal of idealization is to simplify the intricate interactions between the...

Actuator line modeling of wind turbines requires the definition of a free-stream velocity in a computational mesh and a regularization kernel to project the computed body forces onto the domain. Both choices strongly influence the results. In this work, a novel velocity sampling method—the so-called effective velocity model (EVM)—is...

The global installed capacity of floating offshore wind turbines is projected to increase by at least 100 times over the next decades. Station-keeping of floating offshore renewable energy devices is achieved through the use of mooring systems. Mooring systems are exposed to a variety of environmental and operational conditions that cause...

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...

The Jones Act, limited US port facilities, and absence of Jones Act-compliant installation vessels pose significant challenges for offshore wind farm installations. These factors force contractors to explore new installation strategies, such as feedering. Feedering is an installation strategy where the wind turbine installation vessel remains...
