Research project: Decision Support System of Bespoke Ice Protection System for Wind Turbine in Cold Climates Sites

Abstract

Developed Decision Support System of Bespoke Ice Protection System for new and existing wind farms in Cold Climate areas with different weather conditions to prevent the ice accretion on blades by evaluating the composite material of blade within the super hydrophobic coatings and integrating the new matrix of heating mats at initial stage of design.
