This paper presents some dynamic measurements acquired from the surface of a composite constructed test blade on an operating 400W three-bladed wind turbine. The structural design of the composite blade was modified from the original design to reduce its stiffness in flapwise bending. Signals...
A method is developed for using the levelized cost of energy as the objective function for offshore wind farm layout optimization problems. The method converts the cost of energy into a function of turbine position only. To accomplish this, wind speed data are first characterized by direction...
At cold climate sites, the icing of the turbine components, mainly the blades, affects the system's performance and safety due to the ice accretion and shedding. Consequently, the economic sustainability of wind turbine utilization in adverse climates needs some special requirements, such as...
A suitable load control method for a constant tip speed ratio operation of stand-alone systems using vertical axis wind turbines with a self-starting capability is discussed from the viewpoint of its power generation capability and output fluctuations. This study takes up a stand-alone system...
In certain weather conditions, intense power fluctuations have been observed in the Horns Rev offshore windfarm (160 MW) located in the North Sea. This Note presents the results showing a correlation between wind direction and power fluctuations in this large offshore windfarm.
