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

Visual inspection is an integral part of Condition and Class surveys, with the results comprising of the surveyors’ opinion, documented by a sum of pictures indicating areas of interest. Although this way provides the most essential information, the communication of the results may be difficult, since isolated images cannot provide the context. Photogrammetry exploits pictorial data to provide 3D models, with a high level of accuracy and is not an uncommon method in the maritime environment. Use of such methods to support visual survey activities is examined in this work, providing the methodology for the data collection, which is structured in an algorithmic way, to enable realization by automated means (robots). The 3D model is provided, along with accuracy results.
