Active Suspensions with Controlled Interaction Rules (ASCIR)

Start date: 01 Oct 2016, End date: 30 Sep 2021,

Self-propelling, i.e., active colloidal particles constitute a novel class of non-equilibrium systems which exhibit structural and dynamical features similar to those in assemblies of bacteria or other motile organisms. Due to their reduced complexity, they provide an intriguing chance to understand the formation of dynamical structures in non-equilibrium systems in unprecedented detail. A central ...

Strongly interacting Rydberg slow light polaritons (SIRPOL)

Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2021,

A fundamental property of optical photons is their extremely weak interactions, which can be ignored for all practical purposes and applications. This phenomena forms the basis for our understanding of light and is at the heart for the rich variety of tools available to manipulate and control optical beams. On the other hand, a controlled and strong interaction between individual photons would be ...

Closed Loop Wind Farm Control (CL-Windcon)

Start date: 01 Nov 2016, End date: 31 Oct 2019,

Current practice in wind turbines operation is that every turbine has its own controller that optimizes its own performance in terms of energy capture and loading. This way of operating wind farms means that each wind turbine operates based only on the available information on its own measurements. This gets the wind farm to operate in a non-optimum way, since wind turbines are not operating as pl ...
