turbine PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 52 turbine PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Advanced Wind Turbine Control Systems

Wind turbine control is necessary to ensure low maintenance costs and efficient performance. The control system also guarantees safe operation, optimizes power output, and ensures long structural life. Read more

CFD Study of Wind Turbine Aerodynamics

Wind turbine is the main technology that converts wind energy to electricity. The interaction between air flow and the turbine blade are critical to the structure integrity and noise generation of the turbine. Read more

Damage characterisation and root cause analysis of wind turbine pitch bearings

Blade pitch bearings of large scale wind turbines control the individual blades in order to maximise power generation at low wind speeds and to prevent turbine damages under high winds. Read more

Combined Cycle Gas Turbine – CCS; experiment and modelling

This project will combine an experimental and modelling study of a combined cycle gas turbine with CCS. A Turbec T100 gas turbine will be modified to allow the investigation of the effect of exhaust gas recycle and or steam injection on its performance, with measurement of power output and exhaust gas emissions. Read more

Investigation of white etching crack damage mechanism in wind turbine gearbox bearings

Modern wind turbine gearbox bearings are failing prematurely, by white structure flaking and axial cracking, which may be caused by the propagation of subsurface white etching cracks (WECs). Read more

Monitoring and modelling of ground vibration activity from onshore and offshore wind farms

  Research Group: Institute of Sustainable Built Environment
Background – the need to analyse seismic vibrations from wind turbines is recognised to be of growing importance as these renewable energy sources are further developed and promoted worldwide. Read more

Structural health monitoring of wind turbines exposed to atmospheric turbulence

​​Climate change and net-zero policies across the globe are urgently promoting the need for renewable energies [1]. In the UK alone, for every extra GWh of energy produced by wind, we can prevent the emission of 450 tonnes of carbon yearly [2]. Read more

Advanced optical diagnostics for temperature measurement in gas turbine flames

This project aims to develop advanced optical methods for measurement within the combustion environment. The project will be conducted within the state-of-the-art NCCAT labs with a focus on delivering optical temperature measurements that are applicable to aerospace gas turbines. Read more

PhD Studentship in Development of a vibration management concept for gas turbine engines

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of future aeroengine technology, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The post is supported by a bursary and fees (at the UK student rate) provided by the EPSRC, with a generous bursary top-up from industrial funds. EPSRC candidates should fulfil the eligibility criteria for the award. .
