Modelling and Simulation for Quantifiable Greenport Optimisation Aspects of Windfarm Operations

Abstract

Wind farms are being built and operated around the globe, with many located in accessible location offshore, that are cheaper to oerate, but which have considerable impact on local environments. We review some criteria for green portsand environments emphasising environments such as the Humber estuary and large scale windfarms such as those being developed near to Hull and the Humber. We consider coupled and whole-systems effects to develop a complex systems model of windfarm construction and operations including logistics, and its impact on an economic and environmental region. We outline some quantifiable metrics against which operational parameters might be optimised and discuss developmental directions for practical modelling and simulation.

Keywords: green port; logistics; windfarms; estuarine systems; modelling; simulation
