In the last decade, wind power generation technology became more mature and competitive in utility scale. It is promising and could be viable in n the near term, including economic and policy analysis recommendations. Coupled with global environmental concern and desire of diversification in energy supply, wind energy is playing an important role in the future electricity market.
“Wind Turbine 2020” is a continuation of the previous and successful series of Special Issue with topic of “Wind Turbines”. This Special Issue offers a major forum for the reporting of advances in this rapidly developing technology with the goal of realizing the world-wide potential to harness clean energy from land-based and offshore wind. Similarly, this issue also focuses on recent advances in the wind energy sector on a wide range of topics, including:
- wind resource mapping,
- wind intermittency issues
- wind turbine reliability, availability, safety and risk
- aerodynamics, foundations, aeroelasticity
- wind turbine technologies
- control of wind turbines, diagnostics
- generator concepts including gearless concepts
- power electronic converters
- grid interconnection, ride-through operation, protection
- wind farm layouts - optimization and control, reliability, operations and maintenance
- black start of wind farms
- effects of wind farms on local and global climate
- wind power stations
- energy storage systems in wind farms
- smart-grid and micro-grid related to wind turbine operation
- cost and life cycle assessment of wind turbines
