Optimisation of Offshore Wind Farms Using a Genetic Algorithm
International Journal of Offshore and Polar Engineering
A modular framework for the optimisation of an offshore wind farm using a discrete genetic algorithm is presented. This approach uses a bespoke grid generation algorithm to define the discrete positions that turbines may occupy thereby implicitly satisfying navigational and search and rescue constraints through the wind farm. The presented methodology takes a holistic approach optimising both the turbine placement and inter-array cable network, while minimising the levelised cost of energy anddoi:10.17736/ijope.2016.mmr16 fatcat:ptv5ajml7zhezkpbddzz4ozwyq
