The article presents information on Hywind Floating Wind Turbine facility, owned by StatoilHydro ASA in Norway. It is stated that the facility is the first large-scale wind turbine supported by an underwater floating structure. Sjur E. Bratland, asset manager of StatoilHydro, comments on the Hywind project and states that the project is a one-time prototype. It is mentioned that the Hywind prototype wind turbine about weighs 5, 300 metric tons.

    This paper presents a simulation study of the control of a variable speed wind energy conversion system (WECS) using a wound field synchronous generator (WFSG). The proposed scheme is based on an RST controller with adaptive fuzzy gain scheduling (AFGS-RST) and regulates the active and reactive...

    Lifting line vortex models have been widely used to predict flow fields around wind turbine rotors. Such models are known to be deficient in modelling flow fields close to the blades due to the assumption that blade vorticity is concentrated on a line and consequently the influences of blade...
