Introduction on Wind Power Systems
Wind power technology has undergone a revolution, and the global wind energy sector is developing rapidly. The phenomenal growth of the wind industry may be attributed to supporting government policies associated with environmental concerns and research and development of innovative cost-reducing technologies.
The wind energy industry is a giant contributor to Danish economy. Currently, Denmark produces about 20% of its electricity from wind sources, and the aim is for a 50% wind share of electricity production by 2025.
Wind turbines may be installed in a small scale like in stand-alone, typically in kW-range, and in wind farms creating wind power stations with hundreds of MW. Standards for interconnection at the distribution and transmission levels are being developed, and they present new challenges for interface and control of wind power systems.
The research programme in wind power systems combines the expertise in power systems, electrical machines and power electronic systems, operating extensively in collaboration with industry and other national and international organisations to attend the important technical issues related to the industry.
The wind power system research programme collaborates with national and international research groups, institutions in academia as well as industry to achieve the best possible foundation for strategic decisions about research initiatives and to provide students and scholars with a good foundation for conducting leading edge research. The wind power system research programme is closely associated and an active part of Wind Energy Structures and Technologies (WEST) at Aalborg University; Danish Academy Wind Energy (DAWE) at Aalborg University; the European Academy Wind Energy (EAWE) and the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA). Some of the partners are:
Energinet.dk, Risø DTU, kk-electronic, ABB, Siemens, Vestas, Siemens Wind Power, Dong Energy, Vattenfall, HEF, SEAS-NVE, Dansk Energi and DTU - Technical University of Denmark.
