  • On the application of miniSoDAR technology to wind energy

    Introduction In the late 1990’s wind turbines with nacelle heights exceeding 60 meters were introduced to the wind energy community. Initially, wind prospecting and siting studies continued to use 50-meter wind towers and extrapolate the measurement to the nacelle heights. It was quickly determined that this approach was not sufficient for the placement of these tall turbines. The next ...

  • Measuring Offshore Wind Resources

    To select the right offshore wind site, estimate the future energy output of a wind farm, and determine the best layout for the turbines, project developers must conduct wind resource assessment (WRA) campaigns on site. This is a critical phase of the successful development of wind farms. WRA campaigns on terrestrial sites have traditionally been performed using meteorological towers equipped ...

  • Reactive capability limits of wind farms

    Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS) technology can be classified into two main types: fixed speed and variable speed. Fixed speed WECS use an induction generator connected directly to the grid while variable speed WECS use a power converter to connect the generator to the grid. Fixed speed WECS require shunt capacitors for reactive power compensation, while variable speed WECS have reactive ...

  • Delivering on the Clean Energy Economy: The role of policy in developing successful domestic solar and wind industries

    The renewable energy industry is expanding to meet the needs of a large and growing global market for clean and secure energy. This growth is likely to continue, with electricity production from non-hydro renewable energy sources expected to grow more than eight-fold from 2009 to 2035, if countries implement their existing commitments, and draw nearly US$3 trillion in investment. In this ...

  • Sources of experience – theoretical considerations and empirical observations from Danish wind energy technology

    This paper attempts to establish better understanding of processes within the black box of industrial learning. Through theoretical considerations and empirical observations, this paper also aims at finding the truest and fairest expression of an experience curve diagram. The paper concludes that experience curves based on the cost of produced electricity are more true and fair than those based ...
