Engineering Design


Our Idea

 

The purpose of the Engineering Design Competition is it to solve a design problem and to explain this solution and its impact on society and the environment. The problem our team, consisting of Domink, Moritz, Joshua and Marcel, devoted itself to is the upcoming problem of renewable energy: "No Wind, no energy". Our idea is the development of a wind power plant that is capable of delivering a constant output to the grid while still keeping up a high degree of efficiency.

 

Other than the pumped-storage hydropower plant the energy is not converted into several form before it is finally used in the grid; the mechanic wind energy will be stored mechanically and decentralized in every wind power plant itself. That way renewable energy can be used more efficient and reliable than now.
