OWL (Offshore Windfarm Layout optimizer): applying benders’ decomposition to the optimal design of offshore wind farms

S. Lumbreras, A. Ramos

The electric layout of an offshore wind farm is critical for its overall cost and reliability. This work presents the model OWL (Offshore Windfarm Layout optimizer) which is able to propose optimal configurations taking into account uncertainty in wind inputs and component failures. Bender’s decomposition is applied to successfully reduce solution time.


Keywords: Offshore installations, Wind Energy, Power System Reliability, Circuit Optimization, Integer Linear Programming, Stochastic Optimization.
