Speech Title：Enhancing Wind Energy Harvesting by Industrial Data Intelligence
Wind energy has been considered to be a promising alternative to current fossil-based energies. Large-scale wind turbines have been widely deployed to substantiate the renewable energy strategy of various countries. In this talk, challenges faced by academic and industrial communities for high reliable and efficient exploitation of wind energy are discussed. Industrial data intelligence is introduced to (partially) overcome problems, such as uncertainty, intermittence, and intense dynamics. Theoretical results and attempts for practice are both present.
