The current status of wind and tidal in-stream electric energy resources

H.H.H. Aly and M.E. El-Hawary – American Journal of Electrical Power and Energy Systems, March, 2013


Renewable energy is an effective and clean source of supplying electrical loads especially in remote and rural areas. In this paper we discuss offshore wind and tidal in-stream energy as they rely on similar technologies for generating electricity at offshore sites. In particular, we survey the impacts of offshore wind and tidal current integration into the grid, various types of generators and their dynamic modeling, fault ride-through techniques used to improve generator and grid integration performance, the aggregated wind turbines modeling and finally put the light on the stability and control problems.
