Gone with the wind? Wind farm–induced wakes and regulatory gaps

Author:  Finserås, Eirik; et al.

Abstract – Wind farm–induced wakes can propagate dozens of kilometres, decreasing the power production and the fatigue lifetime of wind turbines between neighbouring farms. This phenomenon termed hereinafter “wind theft”, may lead to legal conflicts between wind farm operators and even States as power production from a wind farm is affected by the wake effects generated by another, reducing power output. Wind theft can substantially slow down the development of offshore wind if it is not regulated by a clear legal . . .

General Specification V112–3.0 MW

Author:  Vestas

1. General Description The Vestas V112-3.0 MW wind turbine is a pitch regulated upwind turbine with active yaw and a three-blade rotor. The Vestas V112-3.0 MW turbine has a rotor diameter of 112 m and a rated output power of 3.075 MW. The turbine utilises the OptiTip concept and a power system based on a permanent magnet generator and full-scale converter. With these features, the wind turbine is able to operate the rotor at variable speed and thereby maintaining the power output at . . .

Environmental Impact Assessment of Sacrificial Anode Method in Taiwan Strait

Author:  Wen, Chih-Chung; et al.

An offshore wind turbine is set in a highly corrosive marine environment. Its base structure is completely immersed in the seawater. Conventional corrosion prevention methods use both a cathodic protection and a coating method to enhance corrosion protection to protect the structure. Cathodic corrosion protection is an electrochemical process applying the principles of electrochemical cells transforming a metal material into a cathode. There are two types of cathodic protection: “applied current cathodic protection” and “passive galvanic cathodic protection”. The development . . .
