Chapter
This article presents an overview of the opportunities and problems associated with the integration of wind energy into electrical networks currently in operation or under development. A description is given of the requirements for wind energy integration and the consequences that the particular characteristics of this energy source, namely its unp...
Chapter
This chapter contains sections titled: Introduction Basic Wind Technology Concepts Particular Characteristics of Wind Energy Classification of Wind‐Driven Desalination Systems Off‐Grid Wind Energy Systems for Desalination Wind‐Diesel Systems for Desalination Conclusions and Future Trends List of Symbols
Article
In this paper, two studies are carried out related to the performance simulation and analysis of a wind-powered seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plant prototype installed on the island of Gran Canaria (Spain). Three machine learning techniques (artificial neural networks, support vector machines and random forests) were implemented to p...
Article
For the purpose of managing the operation of a small-scale prototype of a sea water reverse osmosis desalination plant installed on the island of Gran Canaria (Spain) and enabling it to function with fluctuating power input, artificial neural network (ANN) models were incorporated into its control system. The ANN models were developed to generate f...
Chapter
The book presents a thorough overview of the latest trends and challenges in renewable energy technologies applications for water desalination, with an emphasis on environmental concerns and sustainable development. Emphasis is on the various uses of renewable energy, as well as economics & scale-up, government subsidies & regulations, and environm...
Poster
In seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants (SWRO-DP) driven by renewable energy sources, two approaches are used to alleviate the high levels of energy variability. In the first approach, the solutions are primarily based on the availability of large volumes of energy storage. However, an increasingly popular second approach involves proposals...
Article
Given the significant water-energy problems associated with many remote and arid areas of the planet, most studies, projects and developments of installations for the production of fresh water using desalination technologies powered by renewable energy sources have focussed on small-scale stand-alone systems. The most commonly used energy sources h...
Article
The Seawater Desalination by an Autonomous Wind Energy System (SDAWES) project was developed to produce a natural scarce resource (fresh water) by the use of a natural, renewable resource (wind energy). The basic concept consists in the connection of three kinds of desalination systems: reverse osmosis, vacuum vapour compression and reversible elec...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, a wind energy converter (WEC) model for the analysis of power fluctuations at an isolated wind plant is presented. The model includes the drive train dynamics, a first-order model for the asynchronous generator, and the power controller. The influence of each element is studied, and the conditions that can provoke oscillations in the...
Article
This paper describes the design and operational strategies of an ambitious prototype for a desalination system powered exclusively by wind energy. The system, installed on the island of Gran Canaria, was designed with several objectives in mind: (a) to determine experimentally the feasibility of the stand-alone operation of wind farms isolated from...
Article
This paper presents an operational analysis of the prototype of an innovative fully autonomous wind powered desalination system. The system consists of a wind farm, made up of two wind turbines and a flywheel, which operates in isolation from the conventional power grids and which supplies the energy needs of a group of eight reverse osmosis (RO) m...
Article
Following is a discussion of the operational strategies of a wind–diesel system which has been installed in an isolated fishing village community on the island of Fuerteventura in the Canarian Archipelago. The project was implemented with the aim of meeting the complete energy requirements of the community: street lighting and domestic consumption,...
Article
This paper describes the technical and economic methods used to select a wind-diesel power system in the Canary Islands. The project was implemented with the aim of meeting the complete energy requirements of a small isolated fishing village, while minimizing fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. We focus on the decisions taken and lessons learned du...
