Talk on Applied High Temperature Superconductivity

Professor Edson de Pinho from Universidad Federal Rural de Rio de Janeiro (UFRRJ) together with our collaborator Dr. Xavier Granados from Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Barcelona (ICMAB) visited today the MareNostrum Supercomputer and met the Fusion Group at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC).

Professor de Pinho gave a talk entitled “High temperature superconducting devices and risk analysis: usual approach and improvements for design and evaluation” in which he presented some of the activities carried out by the UFRRJ Laboratory of Superconducting Materials and Devices (LMDS).

WPCD Code Camp at Innsbruck with Gloria Falchetto

This week, WPCD developers from all around EUROfusion countries have met at Innsbruck, Austria, in the last WPCD code camp of 2018. 37 participants have been working on various activities, all of them aligned towards the European integrated modelling efforts. Discussions have been carried out in the integration of codes within the IMAS (Integrated Modelling & Analysis Suite) ant ITM aiming to bring together codes from fusion research centers.

Group member defends his thesis

Our Fusion group member Marc Fuster has successfully presented his final Bachelor thesis in Physics entitled “Application of the Edge-Based Finite Element Method for fusion plasma simulation” based on the work he has been carrying out since last August in our group under supervision of Dr Shimpei Futatani. The defense took place at the Faculty of Sciences of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.

Plenary talk on HPC at HTS workshop

Xavier Sáez.

Our researcher Xavier Sáez gave a plenary talk on “HPC for solving multi-physics problems” at the 6th International Workshop on Numerical Modelling of High-Temperature Superconductors (HTS) in Costa de Caparica, Portugal.

Xavier focused his speech on the importance of multi-physics simulations to capture all relevant phenomena to model and simulate complex systems, and the key role of High-Performance Computing (HPC) due to the high computing resources required in those simulations.

Barcelona Energy Days – The Energy Transition

The European Union leads the clean-energy transition, aiming to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions in 2050 by 80-95% from 1990 levels, which means almost decarbonising its energy system. The strategies for this transition were discussed today at the Energy Transition Conference in Barcelona organized jointly by the local UPC Barcelona-Tech University, Fusion for Energy, the Government of Catalonia and the municipalities of Barcelona and Sant Adrià de Besòs.
