General information

Name of the project: Energy efficient technologies: from natural phenomena to natural technological solutions

Goals and objectives

Project objective: Enhancement of energy efficient technologies based on usage of power saving solutions of the nature

The practical value of the study

Scientific results:

  • We have developed a concept of linear arrays of hydrotubines for producing electric power on rivers without building dams.
  • A method has been developed controlling a laminar-turbulent transition with the use of distributed suction via a hydraulically smooth permeable surface.
  • We have studied the influence of the properties of micro- and nanostructured surfaces on cavitation flow around a model hydrofoil as well as on the efficiency of mixing in  microchannels.
  • A method has been proposed a method for intensification of mass exchange with the use of a nanostructured surface in the model of a reactor.
  • A new tools has been proposed for forecasting the formation of vortex instability in the flow-through part of a hydroturbine  on the basis of machine learning. 

Education and career development:

  • Two Candidate of Sciences dissertations have been prepared and defended.
  • Two laboratory case studies have been developed for Novosibirsk State University students.
  • We organized the school and conference «All-Russian conference «12th Seminar universities in heat physics and power engineering» (25-27 October 2021, Sochi).
  • The Laboratory has developed and delivered the lecture course «Introduction to renewable energy» for master’s degree students of the Novosibirsk State University . The lectures are in free access on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLea77hk3ALWi8nVP2RomvIWiHc814lhvr

Organizational and structural changes:

The computer cluster «Kaskad»  has been created, featuring 25 TFLOPs provided by CPUs and 20 TFLOPs by GPUs.
