Special Activities

International Small Wind Turbine Contest (ISWTC)

In 2020, parallel to the TORQUE2020 conference, the ISWTC will take place in the Open Jet Facility of the TU Delft. This international contest challenges students from all over the world to design, build and test a self-chosen turbine model in a professional laboratory.

Images of the contest will be shown on screens at the TORQUE2020 venue. As a trial the Delft Global Initiative will be involved in setting the design criteria for the 2020 contest, pushing the competitors to think of development of the most cost and energy efficient turbines for remote and developing areas.

Farewell lecture Prof. Gerard van Bussel
