  • Aesthetic local search of wind farm layouts

    Mayo, Michael; Daoud, Maisa (MDPI, 2017)
    The visual impact of wind farm layouts has seen little consideration in the literature on the wind farm layout optimisation problem to date. Most existing algorithms focus on optimising layouts for power or the cost of ...
  • Neural networks for predicting the output of wind flow simulations over complex topographies

    Mayo, Michael; Wakes, Sarah; Anderson, Chris (IEEE, 2018)
    We use deep learning techniques to model computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of wind flow over a complex topography. Our motivation is to "speed up" the optimisation of CFD-based simulations (such as the 3D wind ...
  • Randomising block sizes for BlockCopy-based wind farm layout optimisation

    Mayo, Michael; Daoud, Maisa; Zheng, Chen (Springer International Publishing AG, 2016)
    The BlockCopy stochastic local search algorithm is a state-of-the-art optimiser for the Wind Farm Layout Optimisation problem. Unlike many other metaheuristics-based optimisers, BlockCopy requires the specification of only ...
