Nordex bags 90 MW contract

Nordex AG is making steady progress in Turkey. After opening a local company based in Istanbul in April this year, Nordex has bagged “a firmly financed contract for a total volume of 90 MW”.

Starting in winter 2009, Nordex will be constructing the Brahma wind farm comprising 36 N90/2500 turbines for power station operator Bilgin Enerji.

The company said Bergama will be the largest Nordex wind farm in Turkey and one of the largest in the country. In all, 36 wind turbines are being installed at heights of up to 650 meters, where high wind speeds averaging around 9 m/s prevail.

Norded shared that the Turkish company will be calling down the turbines under the terms of a master contract signed with Nordex in spring 2008 and providing for a total volume of 210 MW. It has additionally booked a premium service package.

Bergama is the second project on which Bilgin and Nordex are working together: The Mazi III wind farm, comprising nine N90/2500 turbines, is currently being constructed.

Nordex is planning to feed up to 200 MW of new power into Turkey’s national grid by the end of 2009.

Is Britain ready for huge increase in wind power?

Around 400,000 new employment opportunities are expected in a massive expansion of renewable energy as Britain strives to meet two demanding climate change targets. The plan is to cut the UK’s carbon emissions by 34% on 1990 levels by 2020 and derive 15% of all energy from renewable sources by the same date.

The British government is set to share its “The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan” and Renewable Energy Strategy, setting out how Britain plans to meet a European Union target of getting 15% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.

“What we’re trying to set out on Wednesday (July 15) ... is a route map, ...a sense of how do we go from here to 2020 and beyond,” Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband told the BBC.

As per the strategy paper, Britain needs to spend more than £100 billion on renewable energy infrastructure by 2020 (including 7,000 wind turbines).

A new report has indicated that Britain’s energy system is already capable of taking a large amount of wind power.

Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, RSPB and WWF, who commissioned the report, are calling on the UK Government to put in place funding and incentives to encourage investment in much more wind power and to grant priority access to the energy market and the electricity grid.

It highlighted that the National Grid is more than able to manage the variable input created by wind power, as it is already designed to manage fluctuations in demand and supply. The report shows that there is no technical reason why a significant amount of energy generated by wind cannot be used to supply the National Grid.

A section of the media has also highlighted that the government’s plans to concentrate on wind power is a challenging task.

Taregna in Bihar best place to see solar eclipse: NASA


PATNA: More than a thousand years after astronomer Aryabhatta (or Aryabhatha, 476-550 AD) set up a camp to study movement of stars, all roads

lead to the same Taregna village this year to witness the total solar eclipse, the longest in the 21st century, on Wednesday.

'Taregna', the name of the village about 30 kms south of Bihar capital Patna, has a startling phonetic similarity with 'tare ginna', the Hindi equivalent of 'counting of stars'.

The village, adjudged the best place to view the celestial phenomena by the NASA, was expected to host about two lakh scientists, researchers and 'astro-tourists' from across the globe to witness the eclipse.

The duration of the eclipse in Taregna will be 3 minutes 48 seconds. However, the maximum duration of the eclipse would be six minutes 38 seconds, as visible from the Pacific Ocean.

Divisional Commissioner Sunil Barthwal said the state government would provide the visitors with all facilities.

The scientists said they would be studying atmospheric ionization, geomagnetism, asteroids, animals and avian behavioural changes as well as impact on micro-organisms during, before and after the eclipse.

The scientists were also expected to discover asteroids, which existed only in the world of hypothesis, they said.

Most of the rooms in the hotels in Patna have been booked in advance by the scientists, researchers and tourists. Teams of experts from Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators (SPACE), a Delhi based NGO, and NASA, are also reaching here, officials said.

The Patna planetarium is receiving heavy rush for buying special spectacles at Rs 20 per piece as people don't want to miss the opportunity, sources said.

Tour operators have made special arrangements to cash in on this occasion and have already received a overwhelming response.

Cox and Kings, the reputed travel agency, has claimed that a group of both amateur astronomers and others have booked a Boeing-737 for the two-hour journey from Delhi to Gaya in Bihar, specially to watch the solar eclipse which will begin at 5.30 am and last for about two hours.

But there is also a cloud of uncertainty. Scientists were concerned about the visibility of the cosmic event as it is monsoon and whether the horizon would be cloud free during the time of the eclipse, just after sunrise, in Indian locations like Taregna.

According to legends, Taregna had a camp set up by Aryabhatta to watch the celestial bodies. He was probably in Patliputra when he wrote 'Aryabhatiya', his lone work to survive, containing his theories on mathematics and astronomy. The first Indian satellite, launched on April 19, 1975, from erstwhile Soviet Union, was named after the great astronomer.

"22nd July Predication- Solar Eclipse & Eclipse Quake !!!"


We just wanted 2 let you know that please stay away from the beaches all around in the month of July. There is a prediction that there will be another tsunami or earthquake hitting on July 22nd. It is also when there will be sun eclipse. Predicted that it is going 2 be really bad and countries like Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak), Singapore, Maldives, Australia, Mauritius, Si Lanka, India, Indonesia , Philippines are going 2 be badly hit. Please try and stay away from the beaches in July. Better 2 be safe than sorry. Please pass the word around. Please also pray for all beings.





Quake and Tsunami Predicted July 22 2009

21st century's longest Total Solar Eclipse on 2009 July 22



The solar eclipse that will take place on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 will be a total eclipse of the Sun with a magnitude of 1.080 that will be visible from a narrow corridor through northern India, eastern Nepal, northern Bangladesh, Bhutan, and the northern tip of Myanmar, central China and the Pacific Ocean, including the Ryukyu Islands, Marshall Islands and Kiribati. Totality will be visible in many cities such as Surat, Varanasi, Patna, Thimphu, Chengdu, Chongqing, Wuhan, Hangzhou and Shanghai, as well as over the Three Gorges Dam. A partial eclipse will be seen from the much broader path of the Moon's penumbra, including most of South East Asia and north-eastern Oceania. This solar eclipse is the longest total solar eclipse that will occur in the twenty-first century, and will not be surpassed in duration until June 13, 2132. Totality will last for up to 6 minutes and 39 seconds, with the maximum eclipse occurring in the ocean at 02:35:21 UTC about 100 km south of the Bonin Islands, southeast of Japan. The North Iwo Jima island is the landmass with totality time closest to maximum.




The eclipse quake theory is as follows, When the gravitational force of the sun and moon are both pulling on a plate that has not had series of recent earth quakes, the extra pull is all that is needed to "pop the seam" and cause a major quake.


Japans tectonic plates


6+ Magnitude Quake on July 22 2009 at 3:00PM Local Japanese time. This will be follower by two level 5+ Earthquakes and a Tsunami between 5:00PM and 7:00PM. The tsunami will start out in the pacific ocean (to the South East of Japan ... Along the fault line) and hit all the islands to the south west of Japan, Indonesia and even reach New Zealand. The major quakes will actually be along the fault lines in the Ocean.

the theory that the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon pulling together will do the following things.
1. Lift the tectonic plates
2. Cause the tide to rise more than usual
3. Cause an underground molten magma tide to dip and raise the plates following the water tide.

Taken all the time data from the Nasa eclipse site into an excel spread sheet four the four tectonic plates in the region. assumed an hour delay for each event following the lunar eclipse, and then summed the values. I assumed that the events would last longer for the fluids, water and molten magma than for dry land. and then summed the values four all 4 plates where Japan sits.
The blue path above shows the lunar path that will achieve the full solar eclipse at around 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Red dots show where the solar eclipse will be full.

======================================================================

The theory is based on gravitation pull and the earth's tectonic plates

A solar eclipse means that the moon is blocking the sun. The moon has enough gravitational pull to cause the tides an other natural phenomena on earth. The sun has enough gravitational pull to keep the earth in orbit. The theory is that during a solar eclipse, the moon has the Sun's added pull on the earth's tectonic plates. When the Sun and Moon are together on one side of the planet, they pull together and lift up the earth's tectonic plate, just beneath the eclipse. This causes the plate to shift upward, and then an earth quake when the lifted plate gets the little extra push (lift) it needed to move over its neighboring plate. The theory may be hair brained, or it might actually have some pull to it. (pun intended) I'd like to do a simulator game to find out.



Online Documents for the Eclipse Quake Theory
The closest thing you find online (in reference to the eclipse earthquake theory) is this one: India planetary angular momentum theory.
The problem is, its not exactly the same theory... its not a "solar eclipse" causing the earthquake, its the moon inline with the gravitational pull of the other planets.

Making the simulator

The TGEA model earth would be a basic dts sphere. It would then have some curved meshes (dts objects) mounted to on it to simulate the shifting continental plates. The model earth and moon would respond to real game physics for gravity to simulate an orbit. The dts mesh plates would also respond to the gravitational pull of the sun and moon. In the TGEA simulation, the sun could simply be be a fixed gravitational spot (and source of light).

some plates are known to be on top, and others to be on the bottom where they meet, so this is kind of important. To do it right, the tectonic plate meshes would need to have collision detection much better than a simple bounding box. It can't be built to actual scale (distance between a scaled down version of the earth and moon is too great for a basic TGEA map), and the physics can only approximate the real pull... but a basic approximation of the theory could be done.


Earth Plate Tectonics


Then you feed in the eclipse data so the moon is orbiting correctly... and let the simulation begin on a certain date. Eclipse and earth quake data below.


Quote:
On Wednesday, 2009 July 22, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses half of Earth. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in India and crosses through Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. After leaving mainland Asia, the path crosses Japan's Ryukyu Islands and curves southeast through the Pacific Ocean where the maximum duration of totality reaches 6 min 39 s. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes most of eastern Asia, Indonesia, and the Pacific Ocean.

Climate Change: There is a solution... Pass it on!


The global wind energy industry has launched a new public awareness campaign called "Wind Power Works. Pass it on" which aims to catalyze wide spread support for wind energy and call on policy makers to commit to significant carbon emissions reductions to combat climate change.

As the countdown to Copenhagen continues and fears grow that the Climate Summit will not make the deep cuts in carbon emissions required, the new campaign sounds a more positive note.

Launched on the Global Wind Day (15 June), the campaign urges people all round the world to generate the power of change and to send a message to world leaders that they can make the deep cuts needed and still power the world.

The 'Wind Power Works. Pass it on' campaign involves downloading a virtual wind turbine onto users' desktops to show their support for wind energy and deep emissions cuts. These turbines will demonstrate how many homes can be powered and how much CO2 can be saved through wind energy.
The more wind turbines downloaded, the stronger the call to world leaders to agree the reductions necessary to avert climate change and to make wind energy part of the solution.

Steve Sawyer, Secretary General of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said, "We have the technology to transform the global energy system, and we can do so rapidly. That's an important message for our leaders to hear so that they commit to making the cuts so desperately required, and we want it delivered in the strongest terms possible."

Wind power is the only clean technology which is ready now and which can be immediately and rapidly deployed virtually anywhere in the world. It is already the fastest growing new generation source both in Europe and the US, and has the capacity to provide up to 12% of the world's energy needs by 2020, saving over 10 billion tons of CO2 in the process.

The campaign wind turbine game can be downloaded at www.windpowerworks.net/passiton, which also houses a short video and campaign material. The campaign is also supported on Facebook and Twitter and encourages people to start their own virtual wind farms or join existing ones and to pass the idea on. All campaign material will be available in English, French, Spanish and Chinese.

The Danish wind industry had a 5.7 billion Euros export in 2008

The Danish Wind Industry Association has just published the annual industry statistics for 2008 which show that the industry last year had a 5.7 billion Euros export of wind technology and had 28,400 employed in the sector at the end of 2008. Thus 2008 was again a record year for the wind industry and it is now among the biggest export industries in Denmark.


Since then the financial crisis has turned the "world upside down" - and 2009 looks far more bleak than just a few months ago.


Growth Boom

- 2008 was a good year for the industry and we are very happy and proud of the fine result which shows that the wind industry had a total export of 5.7 billion Euros, says Jan Hylleberg, CEO of the Danish Wind Industry Association.


The wind industry's high export figures correspond to a growth of approx. 20 pct. compared to 2007, where the industry exported a total of 4.7 billion Euros of Danish wind turbine technology abroad. This means that the wind power industry exports amounted to 7.2 pct. of the total Danish exports in 2008.


- It went well for the export of Danish energy technology and it went particularly well for the wind industry's exports in 2008 as it accounted for more than 70 pct. of the total Danish exports of energy technology, notes Jan Hylleberg and continues:


- It is particularly derived from the fact that Danish suppliers are increasingly exporting components and services to foreign producers. The Danish producers have been global for years. Now the Danish suppliers are greatly after it and it is a trend I think we will continue to see.


We want to preserve the red-white lead

The Danish wind turbine industry is the world's wind hub and the center for knowhow of wind energy. But if this position and the resulting high export must be maintained, there are two main challenges that must be met.


- The wind industry has an urgent need to test and demonstrate its technology in Denmark. It is therefore crucial for the industry's future, that there are the right places for testing prototypes and enough of them very soon, says Jan Hylleberg and adds:


- We also hope that there will soon be a renewed long term political focus when it comes to planning for renewable energy towards 2020. We need the support for the Danish development of wind power to be reconfirmed and translated into concrete planning so that our industry again can show the newest and best technologies at work on Danish soil as an integral and effective part of the Danish energy supply, and last but not least, wind turbines are essential in order for Denmark to realize its EU renewable energy targets.


The wind industry trade statistics show that by the end of 2008 there were more than 28,400 employees in the wind energy industry. In 2007, 23,500 were employed in the industry and thus employment in the industry has increased 20.9 percent.


The global financial crisis and a lower than expected market growth; however, has meant that the industry has been forced to adjust production capacity in Denmark and therefore the number of employees. The Danish Wind Industry Association estimates against this background that there will be approx. 26,000 employees in the industry at the end of the second quarter 2009.

- We hope and believe that the Danish wind industry at present has made the necessary adjustments to the number of employees, however if the market will not recover again soon, it might be necessary to adapt the work force even more" ends Jan Hylleberg.

TN Wind Energy Target short by 100million units



Chennai, May 17 Electricity generation from wind mills installed in Tamil Nadu fell sharply to 16.71 million units on Saturday, compared with 34.72 million units the previous day. On Thursday, the windmills in the State generated a record 41.16 million units — the highest so far this season (summer).

Tamil Nadu has installed wind power capacity of 4,126 MW, which is over 70 per cent of the wind power capacity in the entire country.

The State has always been handsomely rewarded for using this resource.

The Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) had targeted to get 484 million units of electricity from the wind mills. By May 16, it has got 384 million units.

However, given the fickleness of wind-electricity, one has to keep one’s fingers crossed.

Power hungry





Tamil Nadu has been reeling under acute power shortage and the TNEB has been able to keep (scheduled) load shedding at levels between 900 MW and 1,050 MW only by purchasing power at very high costs from other States, mainly Chhattisgarh.

The industries in the State suffer a four-hour power cut, between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m., but many manufacturing units complain of intermittent, unannounced power outages.

In an informal meeting on March 31, Tamil Nadu’s Electricity Minister, Mr Arcot N. Veerasami, had said the power cut would be off from May 10, when wind power would have started to kick-in.

Wind power generation began earlier this year, thanks to good winds, but there has been no respite from power cuts.

ONGC to step up investment in non-conventional energy sources

Hyderabad, May 13 Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC) is in the process of stepping up investments in the next two-three years to tap into the huge non-conventional energy sources, while focusing on extracting more out of new shallow and existing deepwater wells.

The Director (Exploration), ONGC, Dr D.K. Pande, told Business Line that the work on exploiting coal bed methane (CBM), gas hydrates and coal gasification, along with wind and solar energy sources, will see an initial investment of about Rs 500 crore.

“In fact, once we finalise a contract, we will be able to sell CBM,” Mr Pande said.

“The Rs 500-crore investment will cover solar energy and possibly uranium extraction. While the Jharia mines will produce CBM, the gas hydrates project is being taken up in partnership with IIT, Kharagpur,” he explained.

Asked if work on deepwater wells had slowed down, Dr Pande said: “Availability of rigs has been a major constraint. We expect to firm up rigs during the year and begin work in the deepwater wells of Cauvery basin, Krishna-Godavari basin, Andaman and in the Konkan region in Kerala. We expect to speed up work at Cambay and in Assam.” “Significantly, according to estimates, there is huge untapped potential in the shallow and marginal wells. While ensuring that the existing wells sustain their production, the focus will be on tapping into shallow water wells,” he said.

While the CBM production is likely to be about 5,000 cubic metres, the gas hydrates project will be operational within two years.

Work is also under way for the underground coal gasification project in Rajasthan wherein ONGC is spending up to Rs 100 crore. In partnership with Schlumberger in Dehradun, he said the project mandate covers shared gas.

Referring to the potential to tap solar and wind energy, Dr Pande said that the corporation is generating 15 MW at Mangalore and is working on a solar energy project.

Energy consumption
Earlier, delivering a lecture on Hydrocarbon Exploration Riding Technology Wave at the National Geophysical Research Institute, Dr Pande said that the energy consumption patterns are poised for major changes over the next three decades. Dr Pande said new 4D seismic surveys combined with visualisation facility will help expedite exploration work.

Elecon Engg to invest Rs 100 cr in windmill biz,expects 20% growth

Ahmedabad, May 15 Elecon Engineering Company Ltd, leading materials handling equipment, industrial gears and transmission products manufacturer, said it expected to grow by 20 per cent with sales target of Rs 1,150 crore, including around 8 per cent from exports, in 2009-10.

Elecon’s average growth over the last three fiscals was 32 per cent.

The company is investing nearly Rs 100 crore in the windmill gear business and foraying into manufacturing 1-2 MW capacity wind mill gear boxes as an import substitute, said Mr Prayasvin Patel, Chairman and Managing Director of the Vallabh Vidyanagar-based company, here. The company is also developing a wind farm at Narayan Sari in Kutch where it has bought land.

However, the wind energy business being a risky proposition due to unpredictability of wind, dependability on subsidies and other factors, this endeavour would continue to be only a part of Elecon’s business.

“We don’t want to become a major player in the wind mill business,” he added.

As on March 31, 2009, Elecon Engineering, which leads its sector with 26 per cent market share, had an order book of Rs 200 crore, including Rs 24 crore from international companies while its unexecuted order value was Rs 1,627 crore. Export order booking and invoicing target for gear division during 2009-10 is around Rs 90 crore and Rs 50 crore, respectively.

The company has received business-related inquiries worth Rs 3,000 crore.


Currently it is manufacturing two large marine gear boxes for the Indian Navy’s ambitious first indigenously-made aircraft carrier at Cochin Shipyard with delivery expected in the next six months.

In 2008-09, the company’s sales revenues were Rs 955.06 crore (Rs 826.43 crore). Its PAT was down to Rs 57.45 crore (Rs 67 crore) due to high interest rates and volatility of foreign exchange market, among other factors. The company is paying 75 per cent dividend, as in the last fiscal, Mr Patel added.

Risø DTU is the first in the world to connect polymer solar cells to the grid


As the first in the world, a strong Danish research and industrial collaboration has connected a polymer solar cell plant to the grid. For a long time Risø’s solar energy programme has been conducting research into polymer solar cells, a cheap alternative to existing silicon-based solar cells. Research is now at such an advanced stage that a demonstration plant has been built at Risø DTU.

From the beginning Risø’s research into solar cells based on polymer materials has had a strong focus on production, demonstration and application. As part of an experiment made in cooperation with the companies Mekoprint A/S and Gaia Solar A/S the polymer solar cells have now been connected to the grid at Risø.

”The demonstration is an excellent example of how cooperation between research and industry promotes technology development and creates the initial basis for implementing new technology in society," says Henrik Bindslev, Director of Risø DTU.

The polymer solar cells for the solar cell plant have been produced in collaboration with Mekoprint A/S, who specializes in “roll to roll” production of flex-print and printed electronics.

After the production of the solar cells – and in collaboration with Gaia Solar A/S - Risø DTU has manufactured large panels upon which the solar cells are mounted. Gaia Solar A / S specializes in module construction of silicon solar cell panels and has built Risø’s polymer solar cells into their design. The panel is placed on a tracker which follows the movement of the sun. The generated power is added to the grid.

Already in June 2008, Risø presented the polymer solar cells at the Roskilde Festival in cooperation with Mekoprint A / S. At that time the price was 4.500 € / W, but a huge effort made the price go down to 22 € / W in January 2009 and further down to 15 € / W in March 2009. At the end of 2009 the price is expected to be 4-5 € / W.

Collaboration with the industry seeks to promote the industrialization of polymer solar cells in Denmark and if this succeeds, polymer solar cells can become a ground-breaking energy technology to be used in Denmark and also for export. With such a goal-oriented effort polymer solar cells can become another Danish sustainable energy technology with tremendous export potential.

Advanced experiment is to make wind turbines more efficient and quiet


Tjæreborg Enge, 10 kilometres south of Esbjerg, is going to set the framework for some of the most advanced wind turbine experiments ever seen. A blade from one of the wind turbines in Tjæreborg Enge is removed and replaced with a test blade that has advanced measuring equipment. The measurements on the new test blade begin in May and aim at making the wind turbines of the future more efficient and quiet.


The experiments are going to provide an accurate picture of how the wind acts around a cross-section of a wind turbine blade. These air currents can be calculated and the calculations can be used for designing new blade profiles. Unfortunately the calculation models are not quite accurate, so a piece of the newly designed blade will have to be tested inside a wind tunnel. But these measurements are not entirely accurate either. For in the wind tunnel the blade is standing still during the measurements, while the blade rotates in real life, just as the atmospheric wind is different than the flow inside a wind tunnel. Moreover, the blade is elastic and therefore it moves. All these uncertainties will become significantly smaller because of the new experiments.

LM Glasfiber has produced the blade
The advanced test blade has been produced by LM Glasfiber. Seen from outside it looks like the blades that are already attached to the wind turbine. However, it carries measuring devices. More than 300 measurement points will be read 30 to 100 times per second and some of them up to 50,000 times per second. The only visible thing on the blade is 4 small pipes, pointing out from the front edge of the blade. They measure the wind which hits the blade on the place where the blade has a number of small holes (1 mm in diameter) making it possible to measure the pressure distribution on the blade.

The measurements will take 3-4 months starting in May 2009, after the test blade has been attached to the wind turbine. The measurements will be made in series lasting 3-4 days. When there are no ongoing measurements on the turbine, it will stand still or rotate quite slowly in order to protect the instruments. There will be no measurements during rainy or humid weather, as it may cause damage to the instruments.

Noise measurements
In periods noise measurements are carried out on the wind turbine, as the test programme also includes basic conditions concerning noise from wind turbines.

Finally, a few times laser beams will be used to measure the wind conditions. The laser system is a so-called LIDAR instrument, which is able to measure the wind speed at a point far from the instrument by means of a thin laser beam. This means that when placed on the ground the instrument can make measurements high above where the blades are rotating. A LIDAR throws a beam into the air and is not of any danger to humans or animals in the area.

Cooperation among Vestas, Siemens, LM, DONG Energy and Risø DTU
The research project ”Experimental rotor- and profile aerodynamics on MW wind turbines” is supported by the Danish energy research programme EFP-2007. The major Danish industries within wind energy take part in this project and support it financially. Participants in the project are Risø DTU, Vestas, Siemens, LM and DONG

RISO: PhD Position - Ecosystem Modelling

"Effects of climatic variability and extreme events on carbon cycling in terrestrial ecosystems".

The Ecosystems Programme (ECO) at Risø DTU offers a three years PhD position starting in June 2009.

The Projekt
It is well known that global averages of CO2 concentrations, air temperature will continue to rise. Response studies in terrestrial ecosystems have so far focussed on these average climatic changes. However both historical observations and projections of future climate indicate enhanced climatic variability which will lead to possibly much more severe ecosystem response patterns. This PhD project will investigate ecosystem responses to changing climate variability with a particular focus on effects of altered precipitation patterns on carbon cycling and sequestration.

Kernel of the work is using several dynamic ecosystem models for long-term simulations of carbon, water and nitrogen stocks and fluxes using measured and reconstructed historical data for two intensively studied Danish sites, the climate manipulation heathland site CLIMAITE and the long-term flux observation beech forest site, Sorø. The PhD project will take advantage of an outstanding set of biogeochemical and biological field data. The work is embedded in several national and international projects and will directly cooperate with a newly established EU project, CarboExtreme, and the DTU Climate Centre. This enables close interaction with leading Danish and other European research institutions in the field of climate change impact research.

Your qualifications
We seek an energetic candidate with strong interest in data analysis and modelling of terrestrial ecosystems with excellent communication skills and experience in computer programming, e.g. use of a fourth generation programming software (e.g. R, SAS, MATLAB, IDL).

We offer
The ECO programme offers family friendly and pleasant working conditions in a team of internationally acknowledged scientist and students. The Danish Technical University (DTU) is among the leading European technical Universities and offers excellent training opportunities for PhD students.

Terms of employment
The terms of employment will be in accordance with those of the scientific staff at universities. Salary will depend on qualifications and experience. The position is for a fixed duration. The place of work is Risø DTU in Roskilde.

Application
We must have your online application by 17 May 2009.

Two out of six prizes went to Risø scientists at the European Wind Energy Conference

The European Wind Energy Conference, EWEC, is a major event for all those involved in wind energy. Scientists from Risø DTU play a very important role in this conference with posters, introductory speakers and chairpersons. At the end of this year's conference held in Marseilles from 16 - 19 March two of them received prizes for their contributions: One of the four poster prizes went to scientist Andreas Bechmann. Senior scientist Rebecca Barthelmie, who is currently a guest scientist at Risø from Indiana University, received the Academy Scientific Award.

The 2009 European Academy of Wind Energy Scientific Award was given to Rebecca Barthelmie for her outstanding work and achievements on wind flows around wind turbines, particularly large-scale offshore wind turbines. Much of her work has been carried out at Risø DTU where she has been employed several times over the past 16 years.

“I very much enjoy working with people here at Risø. They have a great motivation and work really hard towards one goal – to make wind energy succeed. I feel honored to have received this award, but what drives me is to know that I in my own small way contribute to wind energy’s success as a serious part of the future energy mix, I think that is why I keep coming back,” she says.

Another important task for Rebecca Barthelmie is to be the work package leader of the “Flow and Wakes in complex terrain and offshore”- work package under the EU program Upwind. The work package includes 8 research groups from all over Europe.

Poster on the Bolund experiment with invitation to blind comparison
Andreas Bechmann had one particular thing in mind regarding his poster. It was to tell about some unique measurements of wind in complex terrain conducted by Risø scientists on the small peninsula, Bolund, in Roskilde Inlet in early 2008; at the same time he wanted to invite others to do a blind comparison of their calculation models.

And he succeeded, so well that he won one of four poster prizes on the ground that it described an experiment using quality data, it was an example of good cooperation between industry and research and the results of the project would be made available to an international benchmarking of flow modeling in complex terrain.

"Around the world there are scientists, turbine manufacturers and wind tunnel experts, each with their own modeling program. We now invite them all to test - and afterwards perhaps adjust - their programmes by means of our Bolund results. At the conference we announced all the prerequisites for the Bolund experiment, but kept the measurements secret. Now we challenge others to calculate the wind on the hill, "says Andreas Bechmann, who apart from the poster prize took home with him a large number of business cards from people who wanted to take up the challenge.

RISO: PhD scholarship at the Fuel Cells and Solid State Chemistry Division

Degradation mechanisms on LSCF cathodes

Do you want to help develop innovative and environmentally friendly energy technologies for the future?

The Fuel Cells and Solid State Chemistry Division at Risø DTU is among the world’s research leaders in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) – a technology for clean and efficient conversion of chemical energy (in the form of, e.g., natural gas, hydrogen, biogas, ammonia or methanol) into electricity and heat. In addition we have activities within a number of related topics in functional ceramics, including high-temperature electrolysis, oxygen and hydrogen separation membranes, electrochemical flue gas purification and magnetic refrigeration.

Strontium and iron co-doped lanthanum cobaltite (LSCF, La1-xSrxCo1-yFeyO3-δ) is a mixed oxygen ion and electron conductor. LSCF shows good conductivity and electro-catalytic activity at T < 700 oC and is recognized as a promising cathode material for low temperature SOFCs which are currently being developed by many consortia around the world. However, the LSCF cathode degrades over extended periods of time. The origin of the degradation is unclear at the moment.

Project description
The project aims to identify the chemical and the structural degradation mechanisms of the LSCF cathode under realistic environmental conditions. The focus will be the phase stability of LSCF itself and its chemical compatibility with other SOFC components. Self-consistent thermodynamic databases of the relevant systems will be built up utilizing the CALPHAD method. Theoretical thermodynamic calculations and model electrochemical experiments will then be conducted to clarify the major degradation mechanism of the LSCF cathode. This project will be done in close collaboration with Topsoe Fuel Cell A/S.

Qualifications

Master’s degree in engineering, chemistry, physics, materials science or similar
Preferably experience with one or more of the following techniques:
o Materials characterization using XRD and SEM/EDX,
o Chemical thermodynamics
o Electrochemical characterisation
o CALPHAD modeling
Ability to work independently, to plan and carry out complicated tasks, and to be a part of a large, dynamical group
Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken

We offer
We offer an exciting and challenging job in an international environment.
Good possibilities for professional and personal growth.
A family friendly organisation with flexible working hours.

Terms of employment
The terms of employment will be in accordance with those of the scientific staff at universities. Salary will depend on qualifications and experience. The position is for a fixed duration. The place of work is Risø DTU in Roskilde.

Application
We must have your online application by 18 May 2009. Please open the link "apply online" and fill in the application form and attach your application and CV.

RISO: PhD in Polymer Photovoltaics / Polymer Solar Cells

The exploitation of polymer materials for converting sunlight into electricity through polymer solar cells for direct consumption or later usage through external storage are believed to convey several advantages such as light weight, flexibility, environmental friendliness, a low thermal budget, low cost and most notably very fast modes of production by printing techniques. Production issues are slowly starting to be addressed and production of very large area plastic solar cell modules up 1000 square centimetres have been reported. Production experiments have shown that it is highly feasible with existing technology to mass produce polymer solar cells at a very low cost, e.g. by the use of roll-to-roll (R2R) printing techniques. While the operational stability has been addressed an area that has received very little attention is the mechanisms that cause degradation, which are responsible for the inadequate lifetime of polymer solar cells.

The Solar Energy Programme at Risø DTU is among the world’s research leaders in polymer solar cells – a cost-efficient alternative to silicon-based solar cells. The solar cell group is expanding in various scientific directions covering all possible aspects of polymer solar cells. The Solar Energy Programme consists of a dynamical and versatile group of people with a positive team spirit. The PhD student will be a part of the team and focus on degradation mechanisms in R2R produced polymer solar cells with the aim of lengthening the lifetime of R2R-produced polymer solar cells. This is achieved by carefully designed experiments involving R2R-produced samples and state-of-the-art physical and chemical characterization using a suite of analytical techniques such as AFM, SEM, XPS, TOF-SIMS, X-ray reflectometry and ellipsometry.

Controllable rubber trailing edge flap to reduce loads on wind turbine blades

"Congratulation To Team RISO"

The trailing edge of wind turbine blades can be manufactured in an elastic material that makes it possible to control the shape of the trailing edge. This will reduce the considerably dynamic loads that large wind turbine blades are exposed to during operation.

”Providing the blade with a movable trailing edge it is possible to control the load on the blade and extend the life time of the wind turbine components. This is similar to the technique used on aircrafts, where flaps regulate the lift during the most critical times such as at take-off and landing, "explains Helge Aagaard Madsen, Research Specialist on the project.

However, there is a difference. Whereas on aircrafts, movable flaps are non-deformable elements hinged to the trailing edge of the main wing, this new technique means a continuous surface of the profile on the wind turbine blade even when the trailing edge moves. The reason for this is that the trailing edge is constructed in elastic material and constitutes an integrated part of the main blade.

Robust design of rubber
In 2004 Risø DTU applied for the first patent for this basic technique of designing a flexible, movable trailing edge for a wind turbine blade. Since then there has been a significant development with regard to the project. By means of so-called "Gap-funding" provided by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and by the local Region Zealand it has been possible to develop such ideas into a prototype stage.



Profile section with a controllable, flexible trailing edge, which is controlled from measurements of inflow to the blade using a Pitot tube attached to the front edge of the blade section (above) or a trailing edge operated from the load on a small profile section mounted in front of the main blade (below)





Part of the research has been aimed at the design and development of a robust controllable trailing edge. This has now led to the manufacturing of a trailing edge of rubber with built-in cavities that are fibre-reinforced. The cavities in combination with the directional fibre reinforcement provide the desired movement of the trailing edge, when the cavities are being put under pressure by air or water.

“In this project a number of different prototypes have been manufactured with a chord length of 15 cm and a length of 30 cm. The best version shows very promising results in terms of deflection and in terms of the speed of the deflection” says Helge Aagaard.

Inside a wind tunnel
The size of the protype fits a blade airfoil section with a chord of one metre and such a blade section is now being produced and is going to be tested inside a wind tunnel.

The capability of the trailing edge to control the load on the blade section is going to be tested in a wind tunnel. This part of the development process is supported by GAP-funding from Region Zealand.

”If the results confirm our estimated performance, we will test the rubber trailing edge on a full-scale wind turbine within a few years” says Helge Aagaard.
