TU Delft launches tool to calculate energy yield of solar panels

TU Delft launches tool to calculate energy yield of solar panels

The installation of solar panels is one of the many ways to make the built environment more sustainable. However, the investment required to purchase and install the panels can prevent homeowners, businesses and governments from taking the risk. The efficiency of the solar panels depends on many factors, like the location and the angle in which they are installed. Therefore, researchers at TU Delft have now developed a calculation tool that can accurately calculate how long it takes to recoup the purchase of the panels.

Game Boy forever! Thanks to intermittent computing

Game Boy forever! Thanks to intermittent computing

A hand-held videogame console allowing indefinite gameplay may be a parent’s worst nightmare. But it is not a toy! It is a scientific tool, developed by researchers from TU Delft and Northwestern University (Illinois, USA) who decided to push the boundaries of batteryless intermittent computing into the realm of fun and interaction. It is also another step towards a sustainable future.

The real risks of a pandemic

The real risks of a pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is a reflection on our society and shows us just how vulnerable we are, despite all the advanced mathematical models that are supposed to make policy- and decision-makers aware of the potential risks associated with a pandemic. ‘Yet,’ write scientists Pasquale Cirillo (TU Delft) and Nassim Nicholas Taleb (New York University) in their recently published paper in Nature Physics, ‘most of these models do not look at the tail risk of infectious diseases, and there is very little questioning of the reliability of the various parameters.’ According to the scientists, extreme value theory (EVT) offers a solution for modelling the actual risks of a pandemic.

Brace yourself, there’s a sandstorm coming!

Brace yourself, there’s a sandstorm coming!

Suddenly your car is covered in a thin layer of yellow-brown sand, and the sky turns orange-red. Your neighbour covers her mouth with a scarf as she walks past with her shopping trolley. And your phone makes a shrill, loud beeping noise: a message from the government. Keep doors and windows closed. This is a reality that has become commonplace in China as the country is regularly hit by large, violent sandstorms. Jianbing Jin (TU Delft) has spent the last few years researching this crippling phenomenon, and trying to figure out how and where sand particles blow into the air.

Researchers from TU Delft discover real Van Gogh using artificial intelligence

What did Vincent van Gogh actually paint and draw? Paintings and drawings fade, so researchers from TU Delft are using deep learning to digitally reconstruct works of art and discover what they really looked like. ‘What we see today is not the painting or drawing as it originally was,’ says researcher Jan van der Lubbe.
