Starter/generator units based on PM machines are generally not considered due to their inherent safety risks. This technology can, however, prove advantageous for aerospace applications where mass, volume, efficiency and low maintenance costs play a significant role. A safety analysis is performed in order to identify the safety and mitigation...

High speed fault tolerant permanent magnet machines have strong asynchronous airgap harmonics, making them susceptible to rotor eddy-current losses. These losses can be reduced by using novel high resistivity materials like plastic bonded magnets and carbon fiber reinforced retaining sleeves. This paper examines by numerical studies the...

In this work, we studied the feasibility of surface texturing of thin molybdenum layers on a borosilicate glass substrate with Ultra-Short Laser Pulses (USLP). Large areas of regular diffraction gratings were produced consisting of Laserinduced periodic surface structures (LIPSS). A short pulsed laser source (230 fs-10 ps) was applied using a...

Offshore wind is considered a vital component of the future large scale renewable generation portfolio. Intense R&D effort is occurring in both the technology and the supply chain aiming at cost reduction. The drivetrain of wind turbines is an area of continuous evolution with currently no one standard configuration in the industry. It is...

The requirements imposed on generator circuitbreakers greatly differ from the requirements imposed on other transmission and distribution circuit-breakers. Due to the location of installation between the generator and the associated step-up transformer, a generator circuit-breaker must meet high technical requirements with respect to rated...

Although, only in recent years, northern European countries started to install large offshore wind farms, it is expected that by 2020, several dozens of far and large offshore wind farms (FLOWFs) will be built. These FLOWFs will be constituted of a considerable amount of wind turbines (WTs) packed together, leading to an energy density increase....

One of the first of its kind, a pilot project involving the instalment of solar roads in Krommenie, was successfully implemented by the consortium of the province of North Holland, TNO, Ooms and Imtech. Seen as a living lab for knowledge gathering in this nascent application area, with a potential of widening the proliferation of PV technologies...

This paper presents a fault location algorithm that can be used to accurately locate the fault at any place along mixed line-cable transmission corridors. The algorithm is an impedance based line/cable parameter dependent algorithm. The fault location algorithm is derived using distributed line model, modal transformation theory and Discrete...

A direct drive generator used in wind turbine has high energy yield compared to other drivetrain topologies and low maintenance is expected as the technology matures. On the other hand direct drive generator weight and size increases rapidly when scaled up to larger units. This paper will investigate the possibility of weight reduction of large...

The transition towards a more sustainable energ y supply system causes changes in the supply and demand of energ y. It requires a more flexible and efficient operation of the electricity distribution grids. It calls for a smart grid with intelligent control embedded in the grids to incorporate electricity storage and controllable loads. This...

The need for cost reduction requires using less raw material and cost-effective processes without sacrificing the conversion efficiency. For keeping high the generated photo-current, an advanced light trapping scheme for ultra-thin silicon wafers is here proposed, exhibiting absorptances up to 99% of 4n2 classical absorption limit for wafer...

This paper discusses the possibilities of applying high temperature superconducting (HTS) synchronous motor to Superbus, an alternative and sustainable type of public transportation developed at TU Delft. Two important factors within the Superbus drive that influence the operating range are weight and efficiency: increasing the weight results in...
