    Constrained Multiple Model Predictive Control Design for Offshore Floating Wind Turbines

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Abbasi, Milad (Author) ; Sadati, Nasser (Supervisor)
    Wind energy is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy sources around the world. Nowadays, the use of offshore wind turbines has increased due to the high and uniform wind at sea, as well as resolving environmental issues such as making noise and sound pollution. Advances in wind energy technology has been effective in wind turbine control systems. Because the offshore wind turbines are affected by the turbulent wind and wave profiles, the control system should be designed to increase the output power quality, as well as alleviating the mechanical loads on different parts of the turbine. In this research, multiple model predictive control method is used to control offshore wind turbines,... 

    The Design and Construction of a Marine Current Turbine and Modeling the Flow Around It

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Nikkhah, Ehsan (Author) ; Seif, Mohammad Saeed (Supervisor) ; Abbaspour, Madjid (Supervisor)
    Nowadays, science and technology, once again, lead approach to renewable natural resources to access energy due to fossil resources restrictions. Growing need for energy, being concerned about exhaustion of fossil resources, environmental pollution caused by burning fossil materials, climate warming and the greenhouse effect and etc. are obvious evidences of aforesaid fact. On the other hand, oceans and seas are large reservoirs of energy which comes from sunlight, geothermal resources, Earth's rotation and gravity by means of mechanical and hydrothermal processes. During the years, many ideas were conducted to achieve and mine the mentioned enormous energy potential of the oceans and seas.... 

    Development of a Model to Investigate Energy Production Potential from Sea Applying GIS Technique

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rahimi, Rahman (Author) ; Abbaspour, Majid (Supervisor)
    The growing requirements for renewable energy production lead to the development of a new series of systems, including wave and tidal energy conversion systems. Due to their sensitivity and the impact of the aggressive marine environment, the selection of the most adequate location for these systems is a major and very important task. Several factors, such as technological limitations, environmental conditions, administrative and logistic conditions, have to be taken into account in order to support the decision for best location. The aim of the present study is to provide an Atlas of IRAN Offshore Renewable Energy Resources (hereafter called ‘the Atlas’) to map out wave and tidal resources... 

    Exprimental and Numerical Analysis of Tlp Floating Offshore Wind Turbine with one Tendon Failure

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Helalat, Zeynab (Author) ; Tabeshpour, Mohammad Reza (Supervisor)
    Offshore wind energy is widely recognized as a renewable energy source that has the potential as a global energy source. Although the use of coastal wind turbines has been successful, it has been challenged in terms of visual, acoustic and environmental impacts. In addition, in terms of technology, it is difficult to achieve high levels of energy from coastal wind resources due to low annual average speed; Therefore, the wind energy industry is trying to make more use of the deep-water wind resources. However, before developing these types of deep-water turbines, economic challenges and technical problems must be resolved. Mooring failure is one of the major issues in the design of offshore... 

    Iran atlas of offshore renewable energies

    , Article Renewable Energy ; Volume 36, Issue 1 , January , 2011 , Pages 388-398 ; 09601481 (ISSN) Abbaspour, M ; Rahimi, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    The aim of the present study is to provide an Atlas of IRAN Offshore Renewable Energy Resources (hereafter called 'the Atlas') to map out wave and tidal resources at a national scale, extending over the area of the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman. Such an Atlas can provide necessary tools to identify the areas with greatest resource potential and within reach of present technology development. To estimate available tidal energy resources at the site, a two-dimensional tidally driven hydrodynamic numerical model of Persian Gulf was developed using the hydrodynamic model in the MIKE 21 Flow Model (MIKE 21HD), with validation using tidal elevation measurements and tidal stream diamonds from...
