Advances in Offshore Wind Turbines and Wave and Tidal Energy Convertors

Call for Papers

Harvesting energy from ocean space has been in a fast track in recent years. Offshore wind is moving to deeper water with multimegawatt, giant floating turbines. The world’s first floating offshore wind farm, Hywind Scotland, began production in October 2017. On wave and tidal energy convertors, there are new designs and methods to improve efficiency and to reduce cost of the generated energy. Energy conversion through rotating machinery is the dominant technology today in offshore energy sector, especially for the offshore wind energy. The focus of this special edition is on drivetrains in offshore wind turbines and wave and tidal convertors. Papers are sought that address challenges in design, fabrication, operation, and maintenance of drivelines used in offshore wind turbines and wave and tidal energy convertors. Submissions offering numerical tools and modelling methods, simulation, or experimental results are encouraged. Papers offering new design concepts are especially welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • New concepts and technologies of rotating machinery
  • New installation methods in offshore wind turbines
  • Design, analysis, and simulation of wind turbines and wave and tidal energy convertors
  • Fault detection, fault diagnosis, and condition monitoring in rotating machinery
  • Fatigue life prediction and reliability analysis of rotating machinery
  • Effect of control system in wind turbines and wave and tidal energy convertors
  • Digital twin modelling in wind turbines and wave and tidal energy convertors
  • Maintenance and inspection planning in wind turbines and wave and tidal energy convertors

Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System at https://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/ijrm/msmma/.

Submission DeadlineFriday, 31 August 2018
Publication DateJanuary 2019

Papers are published upon acceptance, regardless of the Special Issue publication date.
