    Abstract

    In this paper, different options for integration of the multi-rotor wind turbine concept is investigated. The intra-turbine collection network of the multi-rotor wind turbine can be designed in either AC or DC. The reliability and costs associated with each connection option are compared. It is presented that the multi-rotor wind turbine can be considered as wind farm with the same number of turbines and the same configuration for collection network as for wind farms can be used for MRWT.
