For the time being, the new variant is aimed primarily at the fast-growing Taiwanese offshore wind market but it can be adapted to market needs in other countries.The SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbine has a rated capacity of 8.0 MW and a rotor with a diameter of 167 m. It has a swept area of 21,900 m2 and utilises the SGRE B81 blades, each measuring 81.4 m. By the time of its introduction, more than 1,000 SGRE Direct Drive offshore wind turbines will be installed globally. The modifications will ensure the turbine meets IEC Typhoon Class (T-Class) type certification by 2020, which will see it certified to handle elevated extreme wind speeds in typhoon conditions.Siemens Gamesa is working closely with local authorities and the certifying body to ensure all applicable standards are considered. The ability to operate in high and low ambient temperatures reduces thermal limitation, thus increasing annual energy production while preserving turbine lifetime.More: Siemens Gamesa tailors turbine for Taiwan and Asia Pacific market Siemens developing typhoon-certified turbine for Asia offshore marketlast_img read more

first_imgSweden will adjust a key corner of its strategy for dealing with COVID-19, after the death rate at care homes spiraled out of control.The government of Prime Minister Stefan Lofven plans to spend about 2.2 billion kronor ($220 million) on ratcheting up staff levels to help protect the country’s oldest citizens. Another 2 billion kronor will go toward compensating local authorities for the extra costs they’ve incurred in dealing with the pandemic, the government said on Tuesday.Like elsewhere, Sweden’s COVID-19 related deaths have disproportionately hit the elderly. But critics argue that many of those fatalities could have been avoided if the authorities had taken more steps to focus attention on the most vulnerable demographic. Topics : Sweden’s top epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell, says fighting COVID-19 is a long-term undertaking, meaning temporary lockdowns will ultimately backfire. He says once they’re lifted, infection rates will again rise.Instead, Tegnell says moderate restrictions that allow much of normal life to continue are more likely to help guide a society through a pandemic that has a protracted lifespan.The Danish wayBut the strategy remains controversial. Within the Nordic region, contrasts have been drawn between Sweden and Denmark, which opted for a strict lockdown early on.Denmark is now in the second phase of reopening its economy. What’s more, recent data even suggest its infection rate is falling, and its death rate so far is less than a third Sweden’s.Denmark opened large swathes of its economy in mid-April, including primary schools and hairdressing salons. This week, Danish shops opened for the first time in two months, with museums and cinemas set to follow.center_img Earlier this month, Sweden said prosecutors had started an investigation into the high death rate at a care home. Half of those over 70 years old who have died from COVID-19 in Sweden lived in nursing homes, according to national statistics at the end of April. As of Monday, the country had registered 3,256 COVID-19 related deaths.Controversial approachSweden’s approach to handling the coronavirus pandemic has become a topic of international debate after it opted for a much laxer lockdown, and instead relied on its citizens to follow social distancing guidelines.Swedish gyms, schools, restaurants and shops have all remained open throughout the spread of the pandemic. The strategy has so far helped shield the economy from the worst, but Sweden’s death rate is about 32 per 100,000, compared with 24 in the US. and roughly 9 in neighboring Denmark.last_img read more

first_imgAfter Effects is a powerful program that can be fantastic as an online and finishing tool with a only few changes in your preparation and workflow.A few months ago, Oliver Peters did a fantastic post about the benefits of using After Effects as a finishing tool. He covered a lot of the benefits – significantly more powerful typography and design tools, larger library of effects, powerful nesting/precomping, and even glossed over others, like better keyframe control, 3D object abilities, easy motion blur, time remapping and frame interpolation – you get the idea.What he doesn’t cover is the specifics of an After Effects finishing workflow…but you’re in luck! I’ve been using this workflow for several years.I initially started doing it because I was creating videos for a specific non-standard aspect ratio being projected by a set of image blended projectors. All of my videos had to be cropped to 2048×768, and at the time I was editing in FCP7, so all of my videos had to be formatted for this aspect ratio in After Effects. I loved the power and flexibility of the workflow so much that I kept on doing it after we moved back to a standard 1920×1080. It became even easier when I moved to Premiere Pro as my primary NLE.There are a few things I’ve learned along the way with prepping a timeline in Premiere (or whatever NLE you use) for finishing in After Effects, and they might be good things to consider if you decide to try out this workflow. All of the following suggestions are built around using Premiere’s Dynamic Link to send to After Effects, but most of them still apply if you’re using an XML and After Effects’ built in “Pro Import” command.1. Use Placeholders for TextBelieve it or not, After Effects can’t actually read the actual content of titles from Premiere. It doesn’t just ignore font and formatting like Automatic Duck used to when coming from FCP; After Effects completely replaces the text with a black solid. No actual title data is carried over. What are carried over are effects, keyframes, changes to the motion parameters, and timings (in and out points). After Effects also carries over the name of the text layer. This is the best workaround for text content: Name your title in Premiere with the full content of the text you want at that spot and After Effects will make that the name of the black solid. Then you can just copy and paste the name to a new text layer, and use the black solid for timing the in and out points. Here’s a timeline that had a ton of overlay and full screen graphics. Every pink layer is a separate graphic (click image for larger view).In my workflow, I don’t even bother with the content of the title tool. With my first text layer, I make the title show the word “placeholder”, name the title layer what the content should be, and place it. This is what every layer in the above timeline said:Then, all I have to do for the next title is duplicate the first one (for speed, I’ve mapped this to the shortcut CMD+D in Premiere to match After Effects). When you duplicate a layer in Premiere it automatically selects the layer and puts you into rename mode. Just paste or type whatever the content of the new layer should be, drag or insert/overwrite it into your timeline, adjust the timing and transition needed and there you go. No more messing with Premiere’s clunky title tool: Instead you can use After Effect’s significantly more powerful typography tools!2. Keep Tracks to a Minimum and Stay Vertically Organized in PremiereWhen you send from Premiere, After Effects lines up your clips by tracks. The tracks stay in the correct order (top to bottom, not numerically), and each track staggers/stair-steps down before starting the next track. This is important to take note of because editors tend to group things together vertically, like B-roll on upper tracks or titles above the shot it should go over. When you make the move to After Effects, even though the layer order is technically correct, since After Effects doesn’t have tracks they won’t be grouped so closely together. You may have to manually re-order the layers to suit the groupings you prefer (I always do this because it helps me keep my comp organized in the long run). Keeping tracks to a minimum (similar to collapsing or using a minimum number of tracks before sending to a color grading application) keeps these groupings easier to find and makes for a more organized comp.Designating specific tracks for specific items helps with the move and organization in After Effects. I generally use V1 for my storyline (interviews, primary narrative, etc.), V2 for all of my b-roll, V3 for all of my titles/graphics (unless I need to stack them for one reason or another), and V4 for any overlays (film flashes and light leaks, film grain, alpha matte transitions, etc.). This is all subject to change depending on the needs of my edit, but it’s a good template to stick to for me. When I move to After Effects, all of these things stay grouped together vertically.3. Use Dynamic Link, But Don’t Trust ItDynamic Link is a fantastic way to get from Premiere to After Effects. Unfortunately, it can cause problems if used too frequently, if it’s been too long since the project was open, if some source files move, if you sneeze too hard – you get the idea. I’ve heard of and seen Premiere project files and sequences get corrupted or glitched. In small uses it works, but frequent large uses can be risky.Another issue specific to the After Effects offline workflow is changes. When you use Dynamic Link, your timeline in Premiere is replaced with a linked comp. What if you need to make some editing changes? You could do them in After Effects (maybe), but it would be a total pain.My suggestion? Do one of two things:Duplicate your timeline before you send to After Effects so that you have an un-replaced version you can use for any necessary changes, which has the added bonus of leaving the linked comp in Premiere.You can send to After Effects and after it’s all done transferring you go back to Premiere and “undo” the send to AE. The linked comp is deleted, which prevents project corruption, but After Effects keeps the timeline you sent. All you do is output from AE instead of rendering in Premiere. This is my preferred option.4. Export an Audio MixdownAfter Effects is obviously not focused on audio, so working with sound in AE can be frustrating.. So, instead of sending a bunch of audio layers to After Effects (and we all know the crazy amount of audio tracks you can end up with), do your audio mixing in Premiere or a dedicated audio program, then export a WAV file mixdown and bring that into After Effects. That way you’ve only got one audio track that’s already been mastered to deal with in After Effects. You’ll also have all of the pieces you need to do your final export from After Effects, which is the point of the workflow to begin with!I hope these tips help save you some headache as you move to After Effects for all of your finishing needs!last_img read more

first_imgBlack and silver experimental vehicles parked facing south in Sacramento, California on July 17, 2010. Keeping cool using the summer heat More information: eetd.lbl.gov/news-archives/news-cool-cars.htmleetd.lbl.gov/newsletter/nl19/eetd-nl19-1-cool.htmlPaper reference: “Potential benefits of solar reflective car shells: Cooler cabins, fuel savings and emission reductions.” Ronnen Levinson, Heng Pan, George Ban-Weiss, Pablo Rosado, Riccardo Paolini, and Hashem Akbari, was recently published in the journal Applied Energy (Volume 88, pp. 4343–4357). Citation: Silver and white cars are cooler, says study (2011, October 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-10-silver-white-cars-cooler.html Comparison of roof surface temperatures measured during soaking and cooling trials. Explore further © 2011 PhysOrg.com The numbers continue to take on special significance when extended nationwide. An improvement of 2 to 2 percent in fuel economy, scaled to the fleet of light-duty vehicles in the United States, represents savings of gallons of gas in the billions, if these design changes are adopted by the automotive industry.White, silver, and other light colors are coolest, reflecting about 60 percent of sunlight but there are dark “cool” colors that can also stay cooler than traditional dark colors. When dark surfaces are needed for aesthetics or to reduce brightness, one can use special “cool-colored” materials that stay moderately cool by reflecting only the invisible component of sunlight. Solar reflective paints can decrease the ‘soak’ temperature of the air in a car that has been parked in the sun.Manufacturing designers looking more closely into recipes for pigmented coatings that maximize solar reflectance colors would find plenty of interesting research into cool colors at the Berkeley Lab. Its researchers have been looking into roofs and cool colors for some years. They have been measuring the solar spectral reflectance (reflectance versus wavelength over the solar spectrum) of commercially available pigments. The research team has developed a pigment database describing a variety of colors, including browns, blues, purples, greens, and reds, that are cool, in that they are highly reflective to near-infrared radiation. Ronnen Levinson, scientist in the Heat Island Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, is lead author of the study. The research was published in Applied Energy.The researchers had two cars in the sun for an hour, one black and the other silver, parked facing south, in Sacramento, California. The silver Honda Civic (shell SR 0.57) had a cabin air temperature of about 5-6°C (9-11°F) lower than an identical black car (shell SR 0.05). A silver (or white) shell would allow for a lower-capacity air conditioner as well. The cars were run through five identical cycles of soaking in the sun. Each cycle consisted of an hour with the air conditioners off, followed by a half hour of cooling with the air conditioners running at maximum. The researchers measured the roof, ceiling, dashboard, windshield, seat, door, vent air and cabin air temperatures in each car along with weather conditions in the lot.Overall, the numbers compiled in this car-color exercise found that using white or silver paint instead of black paint would raise fuel economy by 0.44 mpg (2.0 percent); would decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 1.9 percent, and reduce other automotive emissions by about 1 percent. Air conditioning in cars not only decreases fuel economy but also increases tailpipe emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. In this sense, cool-color cars influence both the driver and the planet. (PhysOrg.com) — From an environment standpoint, silver and white cars are cool; black cars are not. Researchers at the Berkeley Lab Environmental Energy Technologies Division (EETD) say that the color of your car affects your car’s fuel economy and how seriously you contribute to pollution. A light-colored shell reflects more sunlight than a dark car shell. The cooler the color, the cooler the cabin air, and the less of a need to run your air conditioner.
