WINSENT AND WINSENT-BW: Developing a wind energy test facility in complex terrain Goals The WINSENT project is divided into three sub-projects:The detailed characterization of the research facility's micro climate and meteorology,The…
Using wind lidar in complex terrain isn't easy. The systems work well, but there isn't much in the way of standards and not a lot of experience outside of research…
How much noise is produced by Wind Turbines?
Wind turbines emit sound and vibrations. The TremAc joint project investigates how they are related and how they can be better predicted and reduced
Wind energy is to have a major share in the future renewable energy mix. The TremAc project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), will aim to improve planning, development and acceptance of wind turbines and to develop objective criteria for their emissions. To this end, experts will investigate the interaction between acoustic and seismic vibrations of wind turbines and plan to create a calculation model that includes both kinds of emission.
On March 18, 2015, Baden-Württemberg Environment Minister Franz Untersteller and Nikolaus Tschenk, member of the State Parliament of Baden-Württemberg, visited the Institute of Aerodynamics and Gas Dynamics (Institut für Aerodynamik und Gasdynamik – IAG) on the University’s Vaihingen campus. They were accompanied by Professor Wolfgang Ressel, Rector of the University.
Short term forecasts of wind and photovoltaics output are important parameters for an optimal operation of combined renewable energy power plants. For this reason, several WindFors partners submitted a proposal for a research project on this topic to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The proposal was approved and the VORKAST project launched on September 1, 2014.
Membership of three more institutes from TU München and the University of Stuttgart helps to increasingly round off WindForS’ portfolio. These institutes include the Institute of Applied Mechanics of TUM…
