Sandian Presents on PV Failure Analysis at European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSC)

Sandia researcher Joshua Stein (in Sandia’s Photovoltaic & Distributed Systems Integration Dept.) highlighted novel PV array monitoring strategies at a PV Performance Analysis and Module Reliability workshop held at the European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The talk was coauthored by Mike Green from MG Lightning Electrical Engineering in Israel. Under […]

Sandian Recognized as a Top Professional in Energy

Sandia’s Kenneth Armijo (in the Photovoltaic & Distributed Systems Integration Dept.) was recognized in Hispanic Engineer and Information Technology magazine’s Fall 2014 issue as a “top professional in energy” in their article, “Where Does the Energy Sector Find Its Next-Gen Stars?” Dr. Armijo is a research scientist who holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from […]

Parallel Implementation of Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics Method Using LAMMPS/Trilinos

Sandia has implemented a scalable parallel capability to model polarized-fluid dynamics in micro devices driven by an electric potential. The Sandia team discretized the mathematical model (Navier-Stokes and Poisson-Bolzman equations) with an implicit smoothed-particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method. Due to the method’s particle nature, the team used the LAMMPS (Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator) particle library, […]

Final FY14 Measurement Campaign in Roza Canal, Yakima, Washington

Uncertainty exists regarding the effects on local water operations of deploying a current energy converter (CEC) turbine in an irrigation canal for the purposes of producing electricity via the canal’s flowing water. Budi Gunawan and Guild Copeland (in Sandia’s Water Power Technologies Dept.) and Derek Belka (a Water Power Technologies Dept. summer intern student) joined […]
