ANN-Based Airflow Control for an Oscillating Water Column Using Surface Elevation Measurements
Oscillating water column (OWC) plants face power generation limitations due to the stalling phenomenon. This behavior can be avoided by an airflow control strategy that can anticipate the incoming peak waves and reduce its ...
Fuzzy Airflow-Based Active Structural Control of Integrated Oscillating Water Columns for the Enhancement of Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Stabilization
This paper presents the modeling and stabilization of a floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT) using oscillating water columns (OWCs) as active structural control. The novel concept of this work is to design a new FOWT ...
Rotational Speed Control Using ANN-Based MPPT for OWC Based on Surface Elevation Measurements
This paper presents an ANN-based rotational speed control to avoid the stalling behavior in Oscillating Water Columns composed of a Doubly Fed Induction Generator driven by a Wells turbine. This control strategy uses ...
Complementary Airflow Control of Oscillating Water Columns for Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Stabilization
The implementation and integration of new methods and control techniques to floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) have the potential to significantly improve its structural response. This paper discusses the idea of ...
Self-Adaptive Global-Best Harmony Search Algorithm-Based Airflow Control of a Wells-Turbine-Based Oscillating-Water Column
The Harmony Search algorithm has attracted a lot of interest in the past years because of its simplicity and efficiency. This led many scientists to develop various variants for many applications. In this paper, four ...
