With growing interest in sustainable forms of energy, the wind industry is growing rapidly. The Doubly Fed Induction Generator is the most popular choice for the drivetrain because it is cost effective. However, it suffers from reliability and maintenance issues due to the slip rings and brushes it requires. The Brushless Doubly Fed Induction...

Een toegankelijke oplaadinfrastructuur wordt gezien als één van de belangrijkste factoren voor de overstap naar elektrisch personenvervoer. Huidige oplaadpalen voor elektrische personenauto's zijn ontworpen om slechts één voertuig tegelijkertijd op te laden. Het probleem dat hieruit voortvloeit is verspilling van laadcapaciteit wanneer auto's...

De huidige beschikbare laadpalen zijn eenvoudige voedingsbronnen die geen rekening houden met omstandigheden zoals het energieverbruik van de rest van een gebouw. Hierdoor ontstaan pieken in het energiegebruik en dit brengt hoge kosten met zich mee. Software die nodig zal zijn voor het opladen van elektrische voertuigen met kostenbesparende...

Pantziris, K. (author)
The rapidly increasing penetration of rooftop PV systems in rural LV distribution networks calls for the attention of DNOs in order to secure end-user voltage range. In times of high photovoltaic generation and low load consumption, voltage at PCCs may exceed the specified upper limit and make PV inverters trip. This phenomenon hinders further...

This paper evaluates, for a 2030 scenario, the impact on onshore power systems in terms of the variability of the power generated by 81 GW of offshore wind farms installed in the North Sea. Meso-scale reanalysis data are used as input for computing the hourly power production for offshore wind farms, and this total production is analyzed to...

Offshore wind farms with high installed capacities and located further from the shore are starting to be built by northern European countries. Furthermore, it is expected that by 2020, several dozens of large offshore wind farms will be built in the Baltic, Irish and North seas. These wind farms will be constituted of a considerable number of...

The scattering cross-section of a plasmonic nanoparticle is proportional to the intensity of the electric field that drives the plasmon resonance. In this work we determine the driving field pattern throughout a complete thin-film silicon solar cell. Our simulations reveal that by tuning of the thicknesses of silicon and transparent conductive...

The transfer of energy between systems that are not connected by physical contact between them can be accomplished by wireless power transfer methods, through electromagnetic field or radiation between a primary-transmitter and a secondary-receiver section. In the particular field of e-mobility, inductive power transfer systems have been...
