Transition to high performance railway overhead power lines

Recently undertaken research at Sheffield has identified opportunities to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of rail electrification systems through improvements to materials and design of the pantograph to overhead line contact. Read more

Techno-economic optimisation of the CO2 value chain

The utilisation of CO2 within the Power-to-X (PtX) concept can produce value added products, such as fuels and chemicals that can substitute fossil value chains and has the potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Read more

Damage characterisation and root cause analysis of wind turbine pitch bearings

Blade pitch bearings of large scale wind turbines control the individual blades in order to maximise power generation at low wind speeds and to prevent turbine damages under high winds. Read more

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
