Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

The performance of a ring-resonator based passive wavelength router, suitable for optical networking at chip level, is evaluated through bit error rate measurements in single channel 10 Gb/s and 3-channel 10 Gb/s WDM configurations. As the routing path involves a different number of routing elements, depending on the wavelength used for the propagating signal, the performance of three output ports with respect to a specified input one are experimentally evaluated and discussed. Measurements show that low rejection on the filter elements due to fabrication issues mostly affect the channel on the through path with respect to the dropped ones.
