CENER organizes the annual meeting of the project INNWIND in Pamplona pursuing the lower cost of wind energy

innwind-2015

CENER Wind Energy Department has organized the annual meeting of the European project INNWIND, which takes place in Pamplona during this week. Technical workshops were held on Monday and Tuesday, and the general member meeting will be held today and tomorrow. Antonio Ugarte, CENER Wind Energy Department Director, and Peter Hjuler, Deputy Head of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) Wind Energy and coordinator of the project, have spoken this morning at the opening ceremony of the general assembly in Pamplona.

The INNWIND project, which began in November 2012, is coordinated by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and is being part of the 7 th Framework Program of the European Union. The project involves a consortium of industrial partners and international research centers from nine countries (Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Greece, Norway, Holland, Italy, United Kingdom and Spain), all of them being members of the EERA, European Energy Research Alliance. The project proposes, investigates and assesses innovative concepts for the design of the most critical subsystems of multimegawatts (10-20 MW) wind turbines, such as: rotor, electro-mechanical conversion and support structure. The main objective of the project is to reduce the cost of the energy produced.

The different concepts are analyzed separately but also integrated in the wind turbine, in an integrated approach with the other components. The 5 years project includes test on a small and large scale.

The major project tasks assigned to CENER´s Wind Energy Department are the aerodynamic and structural studies, as well as the research of new offshore wind turbines concepts. In specifically:

  • Design of compressible blade codes at high speeds of blade tip.
  • Study of new concepts. Concept of wind turbine upwind located and model development of shadow of Tower.
  • Design of aerodynamic profiles for blade root zone.
  • Use of pressure fields distributed for the structural design of the blade with the aim of optimizing the conventional methods of design.
  • Study of nonlinear behavior and effects of mesh in the structure of the blade.
  • Development of codes for dynamic analysis of mooring lines.
  • Design of floating platforms for large vertical axis wind turbines
  • Carrying out tests of wind turbine scale models in canal waves.

The project partners are: DTU (coordinator), AAU, CRES, ECN, TUD, NTUA, SINTEF, POLIMI, LUH, FORWIND-OL, UPAT, USHEFF, USTRAT, USTUTT, WMC, FgH, CENER, UBRISTOL, DHI, RAMBOLL, Siemens. GL-RC, GL-GH, Magnomatics, Suzlon (SE Blades), Gamesa, and EWEA.
