  1. 1. Evaluation tool for large scale onshore wind power projects

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

    Author : Frida Jalkenäs; [2019]
    Keywords : wind power; project development; costs; evaluation; energy production; tool; vindkraft; projektutveckling; kostnader; utvärdering; energiproduktion; verktyg;

    Abstract : Sweden has a goal of having 100% renewable electricity production by 2040. To reach this goal, wind power is one of the most important energy sources that needs to be heavily expanded. However, finding a good project site and realizing a project is a process that takes several years and can be difficult to achieve. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wind Forecasts Using Large Eddy Simulations for Stratospheric Balloon Applications

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Ludvig Sjöberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Weather Research and Forecasting Model; Large Eddy Simulation; Microscale Meteorology;

    Abstract : The launch of large stratospheric balloons is highly dependant on the meteorological conditions at ground level, including wind speed. The balloon launch base Esrange Space Center in northern Sweden currently uses forecasts delivered through the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute to predict opportunities for balloon launches.

  3. 3. Production optimization for district heating : Short-term planning of district heating grid in Gävle, Sweden

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Nicolas Lindgren; Karl Brogren; [2019]
    Keywords : Short-term planning; Optimization; District heating; Linear programming; Mixed integer non-linear programming; Branch and bound; Heat storage; MATLAB; TOMLAB;

    Abstract : Energy systems with a high portion of renewable energy from wind and solar power can suffer from fluctuations in production due to weak winds or cloudy weather, which may affect the electricity price. When producing heat and power in a combined heat and power plant, an additional heat storage tank can be used to store the heat surplus which is obtained when the power production is high, and the heat demand is low.

  4. 4. Techno-economic analysis of mobile battery storage systems to utilize curtailed wind energy in Germany for off-grid applications

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

    Author : Muhammad Bilal Siddique; [2019]
    Keywords : Wind energy curtailment; Energy storage; Mobile battery storage; Germany; Vindkraftsnedskärning; Energilagring; Mobil batterilagring; Tyskland;

    Abstract : The increasing share of renewable energy especially wind energy leads to increased share of unpredictable and varying energy into the grid. This leads to congestion in the grid which ultimately results in wind curtailment. In Germany in 2015 alone more than 4000 GWh of wind energy was curtailed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sound propagation modelling with applications to wind turbines

    University essay from KTH/Mekanik

    Author : Julius Fritzell; [2019]
    Keywords : Sound propagation; Wind turbines; Wave equation; Helmholtz equation; Fourier transform; Chebyshev polynomials.;

    Abstract : Wind power is a rapidly increasing resource of electrical power world-wide. With the increasing number of wind turbines installed one major concern is the noise they generate. Sometimes already built wind turbines have to be put down or down-regulated, when certain noise levels are exceeded, resulting in economical and environmental losses. READ MORE
