27 - 29 May 2020 Delft, The Netherlands
Welcome to the Torque 2020 abstract submission website. Until the 8th of December you are welcome to upload your abstracts here. As we are sure you all know, the European Academy of Wind Energy Torque Conference is one of the most important academic wind energy conferences worldwide and we aim to have the highest quality papers, posters and presentations. We look forward to your contributions! Torque 2020 Themes Wind and Wind Farms Keywords: resource, forecasting, wakes, mesoscale, microscale, turbulence This theme is concerned with the wind conditions, intra- and inter-farm effects. This includes: temporal and spatial variation of the wind both onshore and offshore, modelling and measurement of the wind resource near the ground and at altitude, long-term climatic influences on the wind, wake effects, interactions between wind farms, impacts of wind farm clusters, wind forecasting. Measurement and Testing Keywords: measurement, lidar, sodar, radar, remote sensing, satellite, testing, experimentation This theme is concerned with innovations in technology associated with measuring the wind and other meteorological quantities associated with wind resource assessment. This theme is also concerned with experimental and testing technology including the use of wind tunnels and wave tanks. Turbine Technology Keywords: turbine, materials, fixed, floating, modelling, measurement, aerodynamics, aeroelastics, aeroacoustics, foundations This theme is concerned with all aspects of the wind turbine including: blades, rotor, hub, nacelle, drive train, yaw and pitch, tower, foundations, etc. It also includes different types of turbine, e.g. upwind and downwind, horizontal and vertical axis designs, onshore, offshore fixed and floating. Research on measurements and modelling (e.g. aeroelastics, aeroacoustics) related to the design and behaviour of all types of conventional turbine is part of this theme. Control and Monitoring Keywords: control, monitoring, loads, performance, fatigue, simulation, sensors, actuators, damage, reliability This theme is specifically related to the control of turbine to manage loads, optimise performance and provide grid services. This theme also include aspects of monitoring related to operations and maintenance including measurement and modelling. Future Wind Keywords: airborne wind energy, multi-rotors, secondary rotors, unconventional power transmission, hybrid systems This theme is specifically aimed at research into new and novel wind energy harvesting technology including: airborne wind energy systems, multi- and secondary rotor technology, turbines with unconventional power transmission (e.g. hydraulic), hybrid designs (e.g. wind-wave, wind-wind), etc. Systems Design and Multi-Scale Modelling Keywords: MDAO, systems, holistic design, uncertainty quantification, optimisation, multi-scale This theme is concerned with the holistic design of wind turbines and wind farms. It includes multi-disciplinary design, analysis and optimisation (MDAO) and uncertainty quantification as applied to wind energy applications. This theme also is concerned with integrated multi-scale modelling. Small Wind and Developing Countries Keywords: developing countries, small wind turbines, ducted turbines, cross-axis wind turbines, wind-induced energy harvesting This theme is concerned with the application of wind power technology to developing country applications. It also includes the development of novel small wind turbines.
