Short presentation

My research provides solutions by the development, implementation, testing, and application of algorithms and software used to solve large-scale scientific and engineering problems of renewable energy industry. The aim is to provide for innovative products in renewable energy. I am primarily interested in developing knowledge and tools for renewable energy industry and applying those tools for the solution of problems in a variety of applications.

I lead the COMPUTATIONAL ENERGY SOLUTIONS team.

COMPUTATIONAL ENERGY SOLUTIONS

My research is focused for all three weather-driven resources wind, solar, and marine. Using environmental prediction systems that incorporate computing technologies and proprietary methodologies, the aim is to deliver products for relevant, accurate, and critical information necessary for effectively siting, developing, and operating renewable energy projects.

OPEN ACCESS DATA

RESEARCH PROJECT WINDUR

This blog provides information about wind measurement database created for EU WINDUR PROJECT

The small scale wind turbines mainly corresponds to turbines installed in rural and isolated areas. As 80 % of European population lives in cities and the EU Directive 2010/31/EU on Energy Performance of Buildings requires that “Member States shall ensure that by 31 December 2020 all new buildings are nearly zero-energy buildings”. This is a commercial opportunity that also provides a motivation to investigate technical challenges related to the peculiarities of urban wind regime. Urban wind resource assessment for small scale wind applications presents several challenges and complexities that are different from large-scale wind power generation. Urban boundary layers relevant to this kind of flows have different horizontal profiles impacted by the buildings, low speed wind regimes, separation and different turbulence characteristics. In order to have better insight into the physics of the urban wind turbines, European Framework project with acronym WINDUR has been undertaken. The results of this measurement campaign for this project is presented below.
