Book Description :

This book provides the fundamental concepts required for the development of an efficient small-scale wind turbine. For centuries, engineers and scientists have used wind turbines of all shapes and sizes to harvest wind energy. Large-scale wind turbines have been successful at producing great amounts of power when deployed in sites with vast, open space, such as in fi elds or in offshore waters. For environments with limited space, such as dense urban environments, small-scale wind turbines are an attractive alternative for taking advantage of the ubiquity of wind. However, many of today’s tools for aerodynamic design and analysis were originally developed for large-scale turbines and do not scale down to these smaller devices. Arranged in a systematic and comprehensive manner, complete with supporting examples, Wind Energy Harvesting: Micro- To Small-Scale Turbines is a useful reference for undergraduate and graduate level classes on energy harvesting, sustainable energy, and fl uid dynamics, and an introduction to the field for non-technical readers.

Book Description :

As the demand for renewable energy sources has expanded exponentially, a renewed interest for modern wind turbines has been seen recently. In this study, an unsteady aerodynamic analysis of modern wind turbines i.e. 5-MW offshore horizontal axis wind turbine (HAWT) and an innovative hybrid vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) is performed. Aerodynamic loadings from the 3D offshore HAWT are calculated. The flow physics around the rotors of the turbines and wake formation behind the wind turbine is studied. Energy harvesting efficiency of 89.02% of the Betz limit has been achieved for this 5-MW offshore wind turbine. Similarly, a 2D unsteady high fidelity computational fluid dynamics analysis approach is carried out to investigate the performance characteristics of an innovative Hybrid Darrieus Modified-Savonius (HDMS) VAWT. As a first step, the performance comparison of Darrieus, Savonius, modified-Savonius (MS) and HDMS VAWT is performed for better understanding of the unsteady flow physics. Then a systematic analysis on HDMS VAWT for torque and power coefficients is conducted for varied wind speeds and tip speed ratios (TSRs). Flow analysis for velocity, pressure and vorticity distribution is carried out, which provides deep insight into rotor performance.

Book Description :

Modeling and Control Aspects of Wind Power Systems emphasizes on recent development and progress of the wind energy conversion system. In recent years, the energy production by wind turbines has been increasing, because its production is environmentally friendly; therefore, the technology developed for the production of energy through wind turbines brings great challenges in the investigation. The processes of industrialization and economic development require energy. With the development of electric power, wind power found new applications in lighting buildings remote from centrally-generated power. Throughout the 20th century parallel paths developed small wind stations suitable for farms or residences, and larger utility-scale wind generators that could be connected to electricity grids for remote use of power. Today wind powered generators operate in every size range between tiny stations for battery charging at isolated residences, up to near-gigawatt sized offshore wind farms that provide electricity to national electrical networks. This book is focused on the recent advances of the wind turbine modeling with the aerodynamic power and the wind turbine control with the nonlinear, fuzzy, and predictive techniques. A wind energy conversion system, or wind energy harvester is a machine that, powered by the energy of the wind, generates mechanical energy that can be used to directly power machinery or to power an electrical generator for making electricity. The term can thus refer to windmills, windpumps as well as wind turbines. The conversion of the energy of the wind into more useful forms can be done using a rotor fitted with blades or sails. Wind energy is gaining increasing importance worldwide. The book covers topics on grid integration issues, modern control theories applied in wind energy conversion system, and dynamic and transient stability studies.

Book Description :

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWT) is a technology that stands to spearhead the rapid growth of the offshore wind energy sector and allow the exploration of vast high quality wind resources over coastal and offshore areas with intermediate and large water depths. This generates the need for a new generation of Wind Turbine control systems that take into account the added complexity of the dynamics and wave-induced motions of the specific floater. The present work presents a simulation study of advanced controls for Tension Leg Platform (TLP) FOWT that attempts to enhance the power output of the Wind Turbine by conversion of the surge kinetic energy of the TLP into wind energy. The public access data of the NREL 5MW offshore wind turbine have been used to perform the study. After establishing a theoretical upper bound for the possible wave energy extraction using frequency-domain methods, a time-domain state-space dynamic model of the FOWT with coupled dynamics of platform surge motion and turbine rotation has been developed that includes both a simplified model of the turbine aerodynamics and the floater surge hydrodynamics. This simulation model has then been used to implement advanced controls that maximize energy extraction by the Wind Turbine in the below rated power region. The proposed controllers are variations of a Linear-Quadratic Regulator (LQR), considering both a steady-state case and a non-stationary, finite horizon LQR case. The latter requires wave-elevation forecasting to be implemented and therefore two different forecasting algorithms have also been developed according to existing literature. While the wave-induced annual energy yield enhancement of the studied FOWT in the two considered locations is small (around 0.02% the baseline annual energy yield of the studied turbine in the two locations) the study is not exhaustive and other FOWT topologies might achieve better results. The present results clearly indicate, however, that the existing correlation between strong wind and waves makes FOWTs a sub-optimal choice as energy extraction mechanism for ocean wave energy harvesting.

Book Description :

Also called energy scavenging, energy harvesting captures, stores, and uses "clean" energy sources by employing interfaces, storage devices, and other units. Unlike conventional electric power generation systems, renewable energy harvesting does not use fossil fuels and the generation units can be decentralized, thereby significantly reducing transmission and distribution losses. But advanced technical methods must be developed to increase the efficiency of devices in harvesting energy from environmentally friendly, "green" resources and converting them into electrical energy. Recognizing this need, Energy Harvesting: Solar, Wind, and Ocean Energy Conversion Systems describes various energy harvesting technologies, different topologies, and many types of power electronic interfaces for stand-alone utilization or grid connection of energy harvesting applications. Along with providing all the necessary concepts and theoretical background, the authors develop simulation models throughout the text to build a practical understanding of system analysis and modeling. With a focus on solar energy, the first chapter discusses the I−V characteristics of photovoltaic (PV) systems, PV models and equivalent circuits, sun tracking systems, maximum power point tracking systems, shading effects, and power electronic interfaces for grid-connected and stand-alone PV systems. It also presents sizing criteria for applications and modern solar energy applications, including residential, vehicular, naval, and space applications. The next chapter reviews different types of wind turbines and electrical machines as well as various power electronic interfaces. After explaining the energy generation technologies, optimal operation principles, and possible utilization techniques of ocean tidal energy harvesting, the book explores near- and offshore approaches for harvesting the kinetic and potential energy of ocean waves. It also describes the required absorber, turbine, and generator types, along with the power electronic interfaces for grid connection and commercialized ocean wave energy conversion applications. The final chapter deals with closed, open, and hybrid-cycle ocean thermal energy conversion systems.

Book Description :

The harvesting of energy from ambient energy sources to power electronic devices has been recognized as a promising solution to the issue of powering the ever-growing number of mobile devices around us. Key technologies in the rapidly growing field of energy harvesting focus on developing solutions to capture ambient energy surrounding the mobile devices and convert it into usable electrical energy for the purpose of recharging said devices. Achieving a sustainable network lifetime via battery-aware designs brings forth a new frontier for energy optimization techniques. These techniques had, in their early stages, resulted in the development of low-power hardware designs. Today, they have evolved into power-aware designs and even battery-aware designs. This book covers recent results in the field of rechargeable sensor networks, including technologies and protocol designs to enable harvesting energy from alternative energy sources such as vibrations, temperature variations, wind, solar, and biochemical energy and passive human power.

Keywords:Rechargeable Sensor;Energy Harvesting Technology;Renewable Sensor NetworksKey Features:This book provides comprehensive coverage from hardware design, protocol design, to applications. This book provides very recent results. And this book has prominent contributorsWith the increasing deterioration of global warming, energy harvesting technologies as a green source of energy are of great interest to research community. For wireless networks especially wireless sensor networks, the introduction of energy harvesting technologies can address the challenge of energy constraint and obtain perpetual network operation. Although there are lots of existing publications on energy harvesting, most of them are journal and conference papers, which concentrate on specific research problems and do not provide a comprehensive overview and prerequisite preliminaries to understand the energy harvesting technologies. To the best of our knowledge, there are only a few books which are concerned with energy harvesting technologies. One main drawback of these books are that they all elaborate on the hardware design of energy harvesting devices but neglect the impact of hardware design on the performance of overall networks which is also of great significance in practice. For example, the energy management subsystem should be designed to fulfill all the tasks without running out of energy, which is dependent on the available energy of each node and all the tasks of the whole networks. Hence, the algorithm and protocol optimization are as important as hardware design. But this was not elaborated in existing publications and motivates this book
