Greater exploitation of renewable energy is, at present, at the centre of the global policy agenda. In this context, wind turbines represent an extremely promising technology. On the one hand, new installations with large rotors are growing at a remarkable rate, necessitating precise evaluation of their actual capacity. On the other hand, a vast fraction of the wind turbines operating in Europe are presently reaching the end of their expected lifetime, and thus, judicious decisions will need to be taken regarding their repowering, decommissioning and so on.
While wind turbine and wind farm performance research is increasingly relevant, this objective poses several scientific and technological challenges. Wind turbines are complex machines subjected to nonstationary operation conditions, and in real-world plants it is impractical to monitor all the environmental conditions on which the extracted power depends.
Considering this premise, this Special Issue will present high-quality contributions covering all aspects of wind farms and wind turbine performance. While contributions on the following topics are particularly welcome, the list should not be considered exclusive:
- Wind turbine power curves;
- SCADA data analysis;
- Diagnosis of wind turbine under-performance and faults;
- Wind turbine and wind farm wakes and turbulence;
- Wind farm blockage;
- Jets and wind turbine performance;
- Wind power forecast;
- Wind turbine life cycle assessment;
- Wind turbine ageing and end-of-life issues;
- Wind turbine technology;
- Wind tunnel testing;
- LiDAR and anemometry;
- Wind farm control and wake steering;
- Yaw and pitch control;
- Wind turbines in complex terrain;
- Computational fluid dynamics
- Large wind turbines;
- Offshore wind farms;
- Floating wind turbines;
- Microwind turbines.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
