Sustainable resilient data-enabled offshore wind farm and control co-design

Project Details


Open-source tech for resilient offshore wind farm control

Harnessing the power of wind energy is crucial for achieving climate neutrality and energy security. As renewables become more prevalent, the need for precise control technology to optimise the value of each electron generated has become paramount. With this in mind, the EU-funded SUDOCO project will reshape the future of offshore wind farms. While traditional technology focuses on maximising energy yield, SUDOCO sets its sights on cost of valued energy (COVE) optimisation. This approach factors in energy security, storage, fluctuating electricity prices, turbine wear and lifespan. Specifically, it will use dynamic control algorithms, data-driven models and innovative control laws to reduce COVE by 10 %, ensuring efficient and eco-friendly operation of offshore wind farms.
