The commonly used two-parameter Weibull distribution has fitted many wind speed distributions reasonably well. However, the use of such probability density functions (PDFs) does not provide a very accurate description of wind resources. The main drawback is that the wind time series data are...
A state-of-art wind mapping system, the Wind Energy Simulation Toolkit (WEST), was developed in the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) for use by the wind energy industry. WEST is based on a statistical-dynamical downscaling approach, i.e. (i) a statistical analysis of climate data to...
The characteristics of an airfoil at stall conditions determine the performance of stall regulated HAWT rotors and constitute the base of the flutter estimation of blades. This paper presents a numerical simulation of large-angle-of-attack separated flows over airfoils for stall regulated HAWT...
This paper reviews the common control characteristics of a Statcom and presents the control strategies which may be applied for compensation of large wind farms. The Statcom's control and protection are modelled with the simulation tool Powerfactory (DigSilent). The analysis evaluates (i) a...
Wind turbines have been erected in increasing numbers in Europe, the USA and elsewhere. In Europe Denmark has played a particularly prominent part in developing the technology and has installed a large numbers of turbines. The paper is concerned with the influence of the weather on the...
A vital problem encountered in Greek islands within the Aegean Archipelago is insufficient electricity generation. Wind generated electricity appears to be a fiscally viable solution, as the area has excellent wind potential. Yet despite the technological improvement, the penetration of...
