    This paper presents a multiobjective optimization model of wind turbine performance. Three different objectives, wind power output, vibration of drive train, and vibration of tower, are used to evaluate the wind turbine performance. Neural network models are developed to capture dynamic equations modeling wind turbine performance. Due to the complexity and nonlinearity of these models, an evolutio... View full abstract»

    A sound maintenance planning is of crucial importance for wind power systems. There is a large potential in cost savings by optimizing maintenance decisions to make the projects more cost-efficient. This paper presents an approach to optimize condition-based maintenance strategies for components which degradation can be classified according to the severity of the damage. The approach is applicable... View full abstract»

    The characteristic low mechanical inertia of isolated (grid-independent) wind-diesel generating units makes them significantly susceptible to time-varying components of wind speed, such as gusting and periodic ramping. With the electrical frequency maintained nearly constant by the diesel/alternator part, wind dynamics are typically reflected in terminal voltage magnitude of the overall configurat...

    Hybrid power generation system using Offshore-wind turbine and Tidal turbine for Power fluctuation Compensation (HOT-PC) is an autonomous power system. Electric power is generated from both offshore wind and tidal and is distributed over the load system. Power quality problems such as frequency fluctuations and voltage sags, which arise due to a fault or a pulsed load, can cause interruptions of c... View full abstract»

    Real-time control of wave energy converters requires knowledge of future incident wave elevation in order to approach optimal efficiency of wave energy extraction. We present an approach where the wave elevation is treated as a time series and it is predicted only from its past history. A comparison of a range of forecasting methodologies on real wave observations from two different locations show... View full abstract»

    Wind turbine technology has significantly improved over the last 20 years, allowing for the rapid growth of the wind penetration that we are now witnessing. Large-scale wind power penetration impacts the electricity supply industry (ESI) in many aspects and leads to fundamental changes in electric power systems. Also, it raises a number of technical challenges for the transmission system operator,... View full abstract»
