  • Offshore cable systems for array and grid connection systems
  • Smart strategies for wind power plant operation
  • Wind power plant design and wake effects
  • Wind power plant modelling and control
  • Extending wind plant life
  • Operations and maintenance

PV systems technology

  • PV system design and performance
  • Power conversion and grid interaction
  • MPPT algorithms
  • Integration of PV into buildings and infrastructure
  • O&M and condition monitoring
  • Lifetime and reliability, including ageing effects

Other renewable energy sources
