TU Delft starts ‘Wind Farm Flow Control Project’
Together with CrossWindHKN Siemens Gamesa Eneco GROW offshore wind a group of researchers led by professor Jan-Willem Van Wingerden TU Delft have started the work on the "Dynamic Wind Farm Flow Control" project. This project focuses on reducing the wake effect by using real-time data that will contribute to a more constant electricity production.

ERC Advanced Grant for smarter control of energy and transportation networks
In the future, we will see an increasing number of smart transportation and energy networks. However, online control of these large and complex networks is still far from optimal. Researcher Bart De Schutter has received a EUR 2.5 million ERC Advanced Grant from the European Union to tackle this problem over the next five years.

SeaClear project develops the first autonomous robots for underwater litter collection
Today's oceans contain 26-66 million tons of waste, with approximately 94% located on the seafloor. So far, collection efforts have focused mostly on surface waste, with only a few local efforts to gather underwater waste, always using human divers. No solution exists that exploits autonomous robots for underwater litter collection; the SeaClear project will develop the first. Check this animation to explore how are we planning to achieve this ambitious goal!

World record on the single-channel data rate of a standard optical fiber
The fiber-optic communication systems carry 99% of today’s internet traffic. These systems are under pressure due to an exponential rise in the bandwidth-hungry such as video conferencing, HD video streaming and online gaming. In order to increase data-carrying capacity of networks while keeping a lower labor and economic cost, researchers and industries around the world are working hard to achieve higher capacity per fiber.

TU Delft research partner in innovative wind farm Hollandse Kust Noord
As the research partner in the so-called Hollandse Kust Noord (HKN) project, TU Delft is playing a significant role. Once the wind farm has been built, researchers, led by Professor Jan-Willem van Wingerden, will be able to test their findings regarding wind energy in practice, and the amount of energy generated by the wind farm will be maximised.
