Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

They didn't need to have information chopped up into sentences. This is because the whole concept of a sentence belongs to a literate world. In speech we use units called clauses (roughly speaking there's one verb to every clause). If you tape yourself having a conversation, you'll find that you're not really using sentences at all. Instead you use strings of loosely connected clauses. Now [Milton] and his contemporaries were trained to keep lots of clauses in their head at one time.
