Investigation of white etching crack damage mechanism in wind turbine gearbox bearings

Modern wind turbine gearbox bearings are failing prematurely, by white structure flaking and axial cracking, which may be caused by the propagation of subsurface white etching cracks (WECs). Read more

Adjoint based optimization of vertical axis wind turbines

Recently vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have been more installed in urban areas than before. They are known to perform better in urban regions compared to horizontal axis wind turbines as they do not require alignment to the oncoming flow. Read more

Computational analysis of the flow through aerofoil cascades

One of the major global concerns is the environmental pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, and there is a growing awareness of the impact of emission from the shipping industry using fossil fuel as a power source. Read more

Advanced Wind Turbine Control Systems

Wind turbine control is necessary to ensure low maintenance costs and efficient performance. The control system also guarantees safe operation, optimizes power output, and ensures long structural life. Read more

CFD Study of Wind Turbine Aerodynamics

Wind turbine is the main technology that converts wind energy to electricity. The interaction between air flow and the turbine blade are critical to the structure integrity and noise generation of the turbine. Read more

Future electrical power generation system integration and control

With the projected increase in the contributions from renewable energy to the power generation mix in the foreseeable future, a new control strategy of power generation and supply need to be investigated to mitigate the impact of the uncertainties of renewable power sources. Read more

Modelling gas turbine based power generation system incorporating CCS technology

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an emerging near-zero emission technology that can applied to next generation gas turbine based power stations, new and retrofit, leading to a substantial reduction in carbon emission to the atmosphere. Read more

Amine solvent degradation in CO2 capture

CO2 capture and storage is believed to be a promising option for controlling CO2 emissions in the short to medium term. Several methods exist for CO2 capture, with amine capture being the most promising commercial technology at the present time. Read more
