Wind Energy Technology Centre

 

The Wind Energy Technology Centre, involves a focus by ITTDublins School of Engineering, towards research within the field of Wind Energy. As a vast area of research , ITTDublins School of Engineering current research has been attentive to Wind Energy at a Micro-generation level.

Continuing on from an SEAI initiative in 2011,  surrounding wind data collection, (as applicable to our on-campus 6kW Wind Turbine). The Wind Energy Technology Centre is dedicated to continued research in this field while establishing links with Industry and fellow institutes involved in this area.

In Co-junction with our 6kW Wind Turbine, a 15M Metrological Mast resides in the vicinity of the Wind Turbine to allow comprehensive research to develop in this area.Weather station(s) as located on site within our campus, allow comparative data analysis.While two grid tied parallel inverters are in use to feed power back to the  grid. Use of industry standard power analysing equipment as available within the School of Engineering gives the advantage of specific power analysis.
