    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Ilya Ibraheem; [2023]
    Keywords : Wind Power; Wind power project management; MCDM; AHP;

    Abstract : There is limited land accessible for the construction of wind farms due to the obstacles posed by geographical constraints, popular opposition, wildlife conservation, and power system integration. These variables make the planning of wind power projects a complex procedure requiring the consideration of numerous criteria and limits. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Bluetooth Based Bird Detection System

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Muppireddy Sai Charan Reddy; Veera Venkata Satyanarayana Murthy Namuduri; [2023]
    Keywords : Bluetooth; Avifauna; Signal strength; Distance estimation; Bird Detection;

    Abstract : Context: Windmills became one of main sources of energy. Sincethey are placed in open areas, there are many chances that birds mayenter the wind farms and get killed or damaged. Some wind farms usepulse radar systems for saving the birds from windmills. In this pulseradar technology, the turbines are turned off automatically when a birdis detected. READ MORE

  4. 4. Using a GIS to enable an economic, land use and energy output comparison between small wind powered turbines and large-scale wind farms: the case of Oslo, Norway.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Colin Potter; [2023]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; Wind power; Renewable energy sources; urban wind energy; urban areas; planning; vertical axis wind turbines; comparative studies; urban integrated energy systems; Oslo; Roan; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Responding to an identified knowledge gap, the study aims to determine if smaller wind turbines located on top of existing urban buildings are more resource efficient (land utilization and economically) than large scale wind farms. To answer this question, using a GIS, the resource efficiency of the Roan wind farm in Northern Norway was compared to a theoretical modeled installation of small-scale wind turbines on top of buildings within a 2km radius study zone in central Oslo.

  5. 5. Design Optimization of Savonius Wind Turbine using CFD Simulations

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för elektroteknik

    Author : Vatsalkumar Manavar; [2023]
    Keywords : Savonius wind turbine; Computational fluid dynamics; Vertical axis wind turbine; Overlap ratio; Distance between blades; Power coefficient;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on a simulation of the Savonius wind turbine. The Savoniusturbine is a simple vertical axis device, which has half cylindrical blades attached to the main shaft opposite to each other which creates the drag force from incoming wind and generates mechanical torque which drives the generator for electricity generation.
