Taught by professionals of recognized international prestige in various fields of marine renewable energies:

Artificial Intelligence for Marine Renewables

Ponente:

Dr. Jaume Manero, adjunct professor at Dalhousie University

Artificial Intelligence has seen a great evolution over the last few years. The development of novel deep learning techniques in many new complex applications using unstructured and massive amounts of data has opened the door for new and applications and breakthrough transformations in many industries and scientific areas.

Numerical Wave Tank Testing for Marine Renewable Energy Devices

Speaker:

Dr. Josh Davidson, Budapest Univ. of Technology and Economics, Dept. of Fluid Mechanics

It will show the modelling and implementation of the different MRE subsystems, such as the Mooring, PTO and Control systems.

The development of the spar-buoy OWC wave energy converter at IST

Speaker:

Dr. João C. C. Henriques, Principal Investigator at Instituto de Engenharia Mecânica (IDMEC) and an Assistant Professor at IST Lisbon

Its aim is to present the development of the spar-buoy from its start to its current state. The development of a new self-rectifiable wind turbine, dubbed the biradial turbine, is closely linked to the buoy design.

Wave energy and coastal defence under climate change

Speaker:

Dr. Gregorio Iglesias, Prof. of the University College Cork, Ireland and principal investigator of MAREI

The session will review the deployment of wave farms, i.e., wave energy converter (WEC) maintenance, with the twofold aim of generating carbon-free electricity and protecting the coast from floods and erosion.

ELECTRICITY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY ADVANCED COOLING TECHNOLOGIES

Speaker:

Dr. Jesús Esarte, NAITEC

The efficiency of power inverters is closely linked to the temperature that they reach. As electronics become smaller, cooling becomes more complex and requires more efficient cooling technologies.

DATA SCIENCE. THE IMPORTANCE OF DATA

Speaker:

Dr. Angela Bernardini, NAITEC

Data are information and information is power. Over 90% of the world’s data were only created in the last two years. But is the quantity or quality more important? In general, data scientists spend much of their time cleaning data. During this webinar, we will discuss the importance of data and pointers to ensure data quality.

APPROACHES AND TECHNOLOGIES RELATED TO MANAGING GENERATION ASSETS. IOT, EDGE COMPUTING AND DIGITAL TWIN

Speaker:

Enrique Diaz Plaza. Business Development Executive – Expert in Advanced Asset Management, IBM

The session will consider asset management fundamentals and approach, which apply to both industrial sectors and the generation business. Thus, technologies underpinning those approaches, such as IoT (Internet of Things), Edge Computing and Digital Twin, will be introduced and described.

SMART DEMAND MANAGEMENT. EXTENSION WITH SET MODELS TO ESTIMATE RENEWABLE GENERATION

Speaker:

Wolfram Rozas. Leader of Cognitive Solutions in the Energy & Utilities Industry, IBM ILBD

We describe the new demand management paradigm conditioned by greater complexity and uncertainty generated by the 5Ds (Decarbonization, Democratisation, Decentralisation, Digitalization and Deregulation). In the case of Distributed Generation, the renewable generation and load will need to be estimated, in order to then calculate the microgrid load. Estimating renewable generation is a set model (committee machines/expert mix), based on climate data.
