Mare-wint : New Materials and Reliability in Offshore Wind Turbine Technology (Hardcover)
about this item
This book provides a holistic view on wind turbine and wind farm design. An objective of the EU Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan on wind energy is to reduce cost of energy by improving the reliability of wind turbines and their components as well as optimizing operation and maintenance (O&M) strategies with the objective to enhance the competitiveness of wind energy.
The EU funded MARE-WINT project has provided a unique opportunity for a group of researchers who closely worked together and underwent multidisciplinary training which enhanced their understanding for the complexity and interdisciplinary aspects of the design and operation of OWTs. The outcome of this project is presented in this book as state of the art research in OWT design and operation. The scope of the work ranges from advancements in structural and fluid mechanics, to developments in risk, safety & reliability engineering for OWTs.
The book provides a comprehensive overview for advanced researchers in the area of offshore wind energy generation.
