Distributed Wind Energy
The distributed wind energy research group (DWE Group) is based in the Department of Mechanical, Manufacturing and Biomedical Engineering. We are working on problems involving small-/medium- wind turbine noise, control and modelling. The group also co-ordinates distributed wind research.
Selected Research Projects
- Small-/Medium- Wind Energy Platform (with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland)
- SWIP (FP7) - reducing cost of small wind turbines
- National wind atlas toolkit and information site (SEAI)
- Quiet Wind Turbine Technology (IEA)
