On Tuesday August 16 WISE is pleased to host UW Alumna Dr. Kobra Gharali for a discussion on, Wind Turbine Dynamic Stall & Solar Car Cooling Systems.
Dynamic stall is a phenomenon which occurs in wind turbines causing significant energy waste. In more extreme incidences it has also been known to lead to wind turbine failure. The first part of this lecture will discuss how to deal with various environmental factors that can cause yaw loads leading to dynamic stall aerodynamic forces.
The second part of the lecture will move on to focus on an introduction to two solar applications. I will also touch upon the subjects of solar cooling systems and their applications in my work for the MAPNA Group in Iran and other solar competitions such as Ghazal III.
This event is free and open to the public.
