  1. 1. Do feed-in tariffs promote environmental efficiency among wind farms? : a two-stage LCA + DEA efficiency case study on 75 Danish wind farms

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Economics

    Author : Gustav Berglöf; [2020]
    Keywords : DEA; efficiency; environmental efficiency; feed-in tariff; operational efficiency; renewable energy; subsidy; wind power;

    Abstract : It is generally known that wind power has an offsetting effect on emissions by crowding out fossil dependent energy sources. What has not been studied to any further extent is the variability in environmental impacts caused by wind turbine erection and manufacturing. Also, it is not known how economic incentives could affect these impacts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling and grid integration of a 10 MW wave farm - Study of power quality with varying grid impedance angles and wave front incidence angles

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för elektroteknik

    Author : Md Imran Ullah; [2020]
    Keywords : Power systems; WEC; grid connection; electric modelling; flicker; voltage peaks; power factor; wave farm modelling; grid impedance angle; powerfactory;

    Abstract : Grid connection of wave energy is one of the crucial remaining areas of development towards the commercialization of this renewable energy technology. One of the major challenges with the grid connection of the wave energy technology is power variability. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cost Comparison of Repowering Alternatives for Offshore Wind Farms

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Daniel Bergvall; [2019]
    Keywords : Offshore Wind Power Development; Offshore Wind Farm; Offshore Repowering; Lifetime Extension; Decommissioning; Levelized Cost of Energy; Net Present Value; Financial Analysis; Feasibility Study; End of Life Scenario; Annual Energy Production;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to evaluate different repowering alternatives from the viewpoint of increasing power production from existing offshore wind farms (OWF), as some of the first commissioned OWFs are approaching the end of their expected lifetime. The thesis presents a literature review of components and financial aspects that are of importance for repowering of OWFs. READ MORE

  4. 4. ASSESSMENT OF THE OFFSHORE WIND POTENTIAL IN THE CARIBBEAN SEA TO SATISFY THE DEMAND OF ELECTRICITY IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN REGION

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : JOSE ORLANDO GOMEZ SARA; [2019]
    Keywords : Offshore Wind Power; Electricity Demand; Infinite Wind Farm; Latin America and the Caribbean;

    Abstract : The offshore wind potential of the Caribbean Sea has barely been exploited. Currently, the offshore wind power industry in Latin America and the Caribbean region is still at very early stages, leaving aside an important resource that otherwise could contribute to satisfy the growing energy demand of the zone.

  5. 5. MODELING, SIMULATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF A SUBMERGED RENEWABLE STORAGE SYSTEM INTEGRATED TO A FLOATING WIND FARM : A feasibility case study on the Swedish side of the Baltic sea, based on the geographical and wind conditions

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Framtidens energi

    Author : Prajwal Honnanayakanahalli Ramakrishna; [2019]
    Keywords : Renewable ocean storage; storage spheres; Baltic Sea; Pumped Hydro; Modeling; Simulation; Optimization; Offshore wind farm; Storage sphere Integration; feasibility study; Genetic Algorithm; Multiple objective function; Life cycle cost; Payback period; Profit;

    Abstract : Mathematical modeling and simulations of a submerged renewable storage system integrated to a wind farm, chosen based on the geographical and wind conditions at the Baltic Sea, gives insight on the feasibility of the submerged renewable storage and an approximation of the payback period and profits that could be generated. Genetic Algorithms were used to obtain the optimal number of spheres for a certain depth, based on 2 objective functions I. READ MORE
