Closed Loop Wind Farm Control (CL-Windcon)

Start date: Nov 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2019,

Current practice in wind turbines operation is that every turbine has its own controller that optimizes its own performance in terms of energy capture and loading. This way of operating wind farms means that each wind turbine operates based only on the available information on its own measurements. This gets the wind farm to operate in a non-optimum way, since wind turbines are not operating as pl ...

The development of hydrogen as an energy carrier will be dependent upon the capacity of the market to offer low-carbon or carbon-free hydrogen to end-users and consumers. However, the production of green hydrogen and its consumption will most likely be unbundled in order to optimize its transportation and distribution, while enabling cost adequate pricing for green hydrogen. This implies that a ro ...
