Wind turbine asymmetrical load reduction with pitch sensor fault compensation (2020)
Journal Article
Liu, Y., Patton, R. J., & Shi, S. (2020). Wind turbine asymmetrical load reduction with pitch sensor fault compensation. Wind energy, https://doi.org/10.1002/we.2496

Offshore wind turbines suffer from asymmetrical loading (blades, tower, etc), leading to enhanced structural fatigue. As well as asymmetrical loading different faults (pitch system faults etc.) can occur simultaneously, causing degradation of load mi...

Viscosity effect on a point absorber wave energy converter hydrodynamics validated by simulation and experiment (2018)
Journal Article
Siya, J., Patton, R., & Guo, B. (2018). Viscosity effect on a point absorber wave energy converter hydrodynamics validated by simulation and experiment. Renewable energy, 129(A), 500-512. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2018.06.006

To achieve optimal power in a wave energy conversion (WEC) system it is necessary to understand the device hydrodynamics. To maximize conversion efficiency the goal is to tune the WEC performance into resonance. The main challenge then to be overcome...

Energy sovereignty in marine spaces (2015)
Book Chapter
Barnes, R. (2015). Energy sovereignty in marine spaces. In N. Bankes, & S. Trevisanut (Eds.), Energy from the sea : an international law perspective on ocean energy, 13-39. Brill Academic Publishers. https://doi.org/10.1163/9789004303522_003

The term “energy sovereignty” is used with differing emphases to describe a State’s rights or assertions over energy resources and supplies. Given the importance of offshore energy developments, particularly in the field of renewables, this article e... Read More about Energy sovereignty in marine spaces.
