About this Research Topic
This Research Topic will focus on the developments of advanced numerical methodologies and testing methods for offshore integrated wind-wave power generation devices. These methods would cover various aspects of the design of offshore integrated wind-wave power generation devices, such as environmental loads, structural safety and integrity, mooring safety and PTO control strategies. In addition, novel designs of the integrated devices are also preferred by this collection. It is expected that this collection will bring together recent developments related to the design, analysis, testing and demonstration of the integrated wind-wave power generation devices, aiming to promote the engineering application of such new offshore renewable energy devices.
It is expected that this collection will cover the following topics:
1) Novel design of integrated wind-wave power generation devices
2) Multi-body hydrodynamic modelling
3) Multi-body dynamic coupling
4) Structural and fatigue analysis of the floating wind turbine foundation
5) PTO control strategies for the WECs
Keywords: Offshore wind turbine, integrated wind-wave device, wave energy convertor, multi-body dynamic coupling, numerical modelling, model testing method
