X-ROTOR: X-shaped Radical Offshore wind Turbine for Overall cost of energy Reduction

Deliverables

Aero-elastic dynamic model

An aeroelastic dynamic model of the Xrotor turbine This should be capable of simulating the Xrotor concept in sufficient detail to understand its performance and loads

Project website set up

Website and social media pages set up, with the option of going live in M3 or once more project content is created. The website will include at least the following pages: Home, Research Program, Deliverables, News, Become a stakeholder, Contact Us.

Inform data subjects of the existence of profiling

If profiling occurs, data subjects will be informed of the existence of the profiling, its possible consequences and how their fundamental rights will be safeguarded.

General comms. material development

Report on all communication plans and materials to be developed for the XRotor project Successful once delivered by Strathclyde and UCC to the project coordinator andor the executive management group

Environmental and H&S overview

Report on the possible harm to the environment caused by the research if any and the measures that will be taken to mitigate the risks Report must also include appropriate health and safety procedures conforming to relevant localnational guidelineslegislation are followed for staff involved in this project Successful once delivered to the project coordinator andor the executive management group

Procedures and criteria for identifying and recruiting research particpants

Strathclyde to collate all templates of the informed consent/assent forms and information sheets in a short report. Successful once delivered to the project coordinator and/or the executive management group.

Descriptions of Group 1 and 2 and methodology used to identify and convene

Group 1 (Host Communities) will be comprised of at least 50 members from at least 5 different communities. Group 2 (Wider Wind Energy Community) will be comprised of at least 50 members from at least 5 relevant sectors.

Design basis

The design basis deliverable is the main output of Task 42 The aim is for NTNU to collect and document all information that is needed to develop a design of the full Xrotor wind turbine for a relevant site It will specify the rules that will be used to assess the safety and performance of the design and where necessary identify which assumptions are made and the rationale behind them It will be developed in consultation with all partners based on previous design experience and relevant literature The deliverable will be provided as a report and will be shared with all partners

Definition of dissemination activities

Report detailing definition and plans for all project dissemination activities Successful once delivered by Strathclyde and UCC to the project coordinator andor the executive management group

Periodic Status Report

Report detailing full project progress from Year 1 Successful once delivered to the project coordinator andor the executive management group

Secondary rotors and power train (generator plus converter) design

An enhanced power takeoff system that accommodates the unique features of the XROTOR turbine and provides full freedom of choice of operating strategy is designed and performance verified in digital simulations The expected target for the combined efficiency of the generator and power electronics subsystem is 95 This includes selecting the proper generator and converter technology and identifying the necessary specifications of all associated components including power quality control and performance

Literature review on sea birds

The literature review on species specific collision risks will cover at least 20 years of research and will include at least 10 individual pieces of research.

Year 1 report on workshops design recommendations

This deliverable will detail the workshop methodology used provide a summary of the feedback received from both Group 1 and Group 2 and provide recommendations for the development of the XROTOR concept

Final survey design and methodology

The final survey will include details of at least 12 potential purchasing decision influencing attributes of offshore wind turbines

Data Management Plan 1

Data management plan with type ORDP for the first half of the project put in place explaining how all of the data the project intends to process is relevant and limited to the purposes of the research project (in accordance with the ‘data minimisation ‘principle). Successful once delivered to the project coordinator and/or the executive management group.
