Small Wind Turbines: New Trends in Research and Technology

  • Submission closed.

About this Research Topic

In recent years, small wind turbines (SWTs) have become an important technology for harnessing renewable energy in the context of sustainable development. The performance and operation of these turbines as micro-generators for houses or buildings has led to greater investment in both academia and industry to design and improve the performance of SWTs in different geographical locations and under a variety of conditions.

The purpose of this Research Topic is to provide an opportunity for scientists, engineers and practitioners to propose their latest theoretical and technological achievements in system design, modeling, control and operation, especially in the aspects of power regulation and fault tolerant control.

All submissions are expected to present original ideas and new approaches. Articles presenting experimental results for small wind turbines are especially welcome.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Aerodynamics and structural design of SWTs
- Conversion system design of SWTs
- Model developments and identification techniques for SWTs
- Fault diagnostics, fault isolation, fault tolerant control and prognostics for SWTs
- Health monitoring and control of SWTs
- Energy managements of SWTs
- Experimental study of SWTs


Keywords: small wind turbine, modeling, control design, health monitoring, energy managements


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
