[BERICHTZUSAMMENFASSUNG] Direct solar steam: DISS-phase I
The DISS (DIrect Solar Steam) Project is a complete R&D program aimed at developing a new generation of Solar Thermal Power Plants with parabolic trough collectors. The final goal of DISS is a 20% increase in performance and 15% reduction in direct investment cost over state-o...

Long-term variability: Historical records of sea level pressure in Europe extend back to the 1870s. These were used to calculate the geostrophic wind speed. This was analysed for the offshore waters of Europe with respect to long-term trend. Medium-term variability: Using a da...

Mean wind conditions for the period 1985-97 were estimated using WAsP at eight hub heights at each POWER grid point over the sea. The hub height levels (10m, 30m, 50m, 70m, 90m, 110m, 130m and 150m above mean sea level respectively) were chosen to cover the range of expected h...

No sophisticated suspension of a wind turbine (WT) from a building - essential if their integration is to become a reality-has been attempted before, so it is difficult to improve/optimise existing technology. Hence, this result comprises of: - Utilisation of an existing simp...

A bootstrapping estimation method was used to gauge the reliability of the POWER wind speed estimates by calculating 95% confidence limits in the mean monthly wind speed estimates. Bootstrapping uses the available data to create a many additional data sets using re-sampling wi...

Geostrophic winds are theoretical winds that flow parallel to isobars (contours of equal pressure). They are a good approximation to the actual wind in the free atmosphere. They can be calculated from atmospheric pressure data. This is significant because while measured wind d...
