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.

Based on a polyphase analysis of a subband adaptive filter (SAF) system, it is possible to calculate the optimum subband impulse responses to which the SAF system will converge. We give some insight into how these optimum impulse responses are calculated, and discuss two applications of our technique. Firstly, the performance limitations of an SAF system can be explored with respect to the minimum mean square error performance. Secondly, fullband impulse responses can be correctly projected into the subband domain, which is required for example for translating constraints for subband adaptive beamforming. Examples for both applications are presented.
