Special Issue on: "Wind Power Generation"

Guest Editor: Dr T C Yang, University of Sussex, UK

Renewable power generation, in particular wind power generation, is to the benefit of society and has attracted a great deal of research interests. Wind power generation (WPG) is a multidisciplinary subject and there are currently a few special issues on WPG in power engineering journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Power Systems (August, 2007). However, there is no such special issue appearing in system/control/signal journals. This special issue of will present contributions on WPG by system/control/signal professionals.

Subject Coverage
The topics will include, but not limited to:
  • Modelling and control of wind turbines
  • Modelling and control of wind farms
  • Wind speed: modelling and prediction
  • Power system control with wind power generation
  • Energy storage with wind power generation
  • Wind power and other renewable power co-generation
  • Optimal control and management of wind energy
  • Control and noise reduction of wind turbines
  • Control and stress-reduction of mechanical part in wind turbine power train
  • New and improved control of generators for wind power generation
  • New and improved control of power electronics for wind power generation
  • Large-scale integration of wind power into power systems
