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.

Methods for analysing the robustness of linear systems to parametric uncertainty are relatively well developed. However, the converse is true for nonlinear systems. The recently developed velocity-based framework provides a degree of continuity with linear methods which has the potential to allow established linear methods to be applied when analysing the robustness of nonlinear systems to uncertainty. This paper reports initial investigations in this area with particular reference to the guided weapons application area
