Research project

Netico

The domain of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provides a great promise to revolutionize all aspects of human professional engagement. The wind energy industry can particularly benefit from IIoT solutions, especially for wind farms located at sea or other remote locations that require effective monitoring systems to…

Research project

Aerosense

A novel MEMS-based surface pressure and acoustic smart measurement system for wind turbines Background Wind energy is an important technology for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the EU Energy Strategy 2030. As the wind energy industry matures and wind turbines grow, there is an increasing need for…

Research project

Comparison metrics simulation challenge

In this project, a public "simulation challenge" for wind turbines in complex terrain is being conducted, where participants submit simulation results in a predefined template. Hundreds of comparison metrics before and after running the simulations will be collected so that transfer functions can be developed to accurately…

Research project

Pragmatic Choice

 A new process for the pragmatic choice of wind models in complex terrain The aim of this project was to develop a new industry-relevant process for the selection of the most optimal wind model with the least computational effort and cost for the accurate representation of flow conditions in complex terrain. This process…

Research project

Recycloblade

Background As the first multi-megawatt wind turbines reach their end of life and need to be dismantled, recycling solutions are becoming increasingly important. The rotor blades of a wind turbine are a critical and costly component of a wind turbine system. They can be up to 100 m long and are mainly made of fibreglass…

Research project

Skypull

Background To properly address climate change and accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to renewables, new energy generation technologies are needed. They need to be reliable, efficient, scalable and provide enough low-cost energy to meet current and future demands. Skypull can provide a solution and proposes an…

Research project

Swiss Wind Atlas Platform

In this project we are developing a concept for a new Swiss Wind Atlas platform. Suisse Eole has asked The Swiss Wind Energy R&D Network to develop a concept to improve the Swiss Wind Atlas for improved national and cantonal planning purposes. According to Suisse Eole, the current version of the Swiss Wind Atlas tends to…

Research project

Power Curve ML

Die genaue Vorhersage der Stromproduktion einer Windturbine an einem bestimmten Standort ist sowohl in der Planungs- als auch in der Betriebsphase wichtig; die Standardmethode zur Prognose von Leistungskurven ist jedoch nicht spezifisch für die atmosphärischen Bedingungen am Standort. In diesem Projekt wird die Anwendung…

Research project

OpenIMPACT

Wind energy project planning and operation is particularly difficult in Switzerland due to its complex terrain and challenging weather conditions. This requires Swiss wind farm planners and operators to apply a range of different advanced modelling and analysis techniques to each site, making it difficult to transfer…
