  4. 4. Major Component Replacement on Floating Wind Turbines

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Kilian Galle; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Among the challenges that floating offshore wind (FOW) energy faces today, operation and maintenanc ecosts, and especially major component replacements (MCR), are an important cost reduction lever. MCRs are defined as any failure on a wind turbine requiring the change of an entire main component of the turbine, such as a gearbox, generator, blade, nacelle, etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Paradigm Shift for Substations Technology within Wind Power Applications from Onshore to Floating

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Ahmad Talaat Hifzy; [2023]
    Keywords : Floating; offshore; substation; transformer; GIS; equipment; high-voltage; fatigue; Flytande; havsbaserad; station; transformator; GIS; utrustning; högspänning; utmattning;

    Abstract : Floating wind turbines are attracting more attention as more than three-quarters of the total offshore technical potential is located in deep water, leading to a growing trend in floating wind farm projects. Consequently, it becomes necessary to develop Floating Offshore Substation (FOSS) to step up voltage and efficiently transmit power to the shore with minimal losses. READ MORE
