Laser Consult Ltd. posted this:Vertical axis wind turbine for slow and changing wind speedOne of our partner company active in the fields of construction, trade and services has developed a solution to accelerate and regulate the wind speed to handle low wind speed and high wind gusts. The presented product is in the capacity range where other vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) are however its energy production is more effective. The Hungarian firm is looking for industrial partners interested in licence agreement.
DIT Hothouse posted this:Wind Urchin: A 3D Spherical AnemometerThe Wind Urchin is a novel instrument for the simultaneous measurement of wind speed, direction and turbulence. It is effectively a multidirectional anemometer which uses multiple Pitot tubes incorporated into a unique spherical design to provide simultaneous real-time data on all elements of wind and uniquely turbulence.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Soft Computing Techniques applied to the wind forecast on wind farmsThe novelty of these techniques is the enhancement on the performance over the previous ones that have been certified by several scientific publications in international journals. Among these enhancements we must remark the use of several meteorological models with the regression models simultaneously and new training methods for the regression systems.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Analysis and heuristic optimization software system for wind farm design.The utilization of technologies of soft computing has been vaguely applied to the optimization of the design of wind farms, and only with a limited set of parameters. Gheode group has developed a series of algorithms that consider in a much more realistic way the designing of parks, having in addition a great versatility to incorporate improvements or made-to-measure expansions for every client in particular.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Using artificial intelligence to shorten the time in the wind turbine design process.Nowadays, aerodynamic industry makes use of exclusively customary techniques over the different stages composing the design process. These techniques require some computing time (depending on the accuracy provided), which bounds the number of different designs that can be taken into account. By reducing that time through the use of new methods in artificial intelligence, it is possible increasing the amount of considered designs.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Wind flow Interface concentrator for VAWTThe researchers of the University have developed a wind flow concentrator incorporated into a Vertical Axe Wind (VAWT), which allows a significant increase in wind speed before being injected to the turbine. The system allows the optimization of the currents with independence of its direction and it is applicable to any type of VAWT. It is suitable for any type of building.
