      Blade root moment sensor failure detection based on multibeam LIDAR for fault-tolerant individual pitch control of wind turbines (pages 107–115)

      Article first published online: 20 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ese3.37

      A new method for detection of blade root moment sensor failures which is based on variations induced by a vertical wind shear is described in this paper. The detection is associated with monitoring of statistical properties of the difference between amplitudes of the first harmonic of the blade load.

      The reactor has the geometry of a cylinder and it is filled up with the spherical reforming catalysts that are several millimeters in diameter. The heat collected with solar collector B is transferred to the heat-supply surface of the reactor, thus heating the catalyst layer.

      Butanol and ethanol production from lignocellulosic feedstock: biomass pretreatment and bioconversion (pages 138–148)

      Sonil Nanda, Ajay K. Dalai and Janusz A. Kozinski

      Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ese3.41

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Lignocellulosic residues from agriculture (wheat straw), forestry (pinewood), and energy crop systems (timothy grass) were used as feedstock samples for the production of next generation biofuels such as butanol and ethanol. Compared to wheat straw and timothy grass, pinewood hydrolysate revealed relatively high butanol (11.6 g/L) concentrations due to greater sugar content. In contrast to ethanol fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae, butanol fermentation by Clostridium beijerinckii resulted in lower yields due to butanol toxicity.

      Investigating residual trapping in CO2 storage in saline aquifers – application of a 2D glass model, and image analysis (pages 149–163)

      Mansour Soroush, Dag Wessel-Berg, Ole Torsaeter and Jon Kleppe

      Article first published online: 29 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ese3.32

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Two-dimensional glass model experiments are used to investigate the residual trapping mechanism in CO2 storage in the saline aquifers. For this purpose, two proxy fluids are chosen to simulate the CO2-brine behavior at reservoir conditions. Using image analyzing technique on images from the experiments and numerical simulations, the effect of the rate and wettability is evaluated.
