  Development of a Lift-Based Wave Energy Converter
  Dr C Frost
Application Deadline: 8 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves the numerical and physical modelling of a novel wave energy converter that exploits wave-induced lift forces.
  Novel Hybrid Wind and Wave Energy System and Its Structural Dynamic Responses Subjected to Combined Wind and Wave Loads
  Dr L Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sustainable development of offshore wind and ocean energy needs an efficient use of the natural resources, optimising their exploitation and reducing costs.
  Dynamics and Control of Wave Energy Harvesting Devices
  Dr V Vaziri, Dr A Syed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy from the waves is one of the sustainable sources of energy, when harvested efficiently and can play a key role in the energy mix.
  Grid-edge energy flow management in dynamic system charging models
  Dr I Pisica, Dr G Taylor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Grid-edge balancing services will be required to manage the flexibility issues in future power grids. In this mindset, the supply and demand are matched locally.
  The effects of vegetation on wave hydrodynamics in coastal environments
  Prof T O'Donoghue, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabeds covered with vegetation such as seagrass protect against coastal erosion due to their ability to attenuate wave energy and demobilise suspended sediments.
  Wave Augmented PropulsionSupervisor
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr N Townsend
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Nicholas Townsend (Maritime Engineering). Project description. Wave propelled boats utilise submerged flapping foils to convert wave energy directly into propulsion.
  Effects of flexible vegetation on oscillatory flow hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics
  Dr D Van der A, Prof T O'Donoghue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal vegetation such as seagrass protects against coastal erosion by attenuating wave energy and demobilising suspended sediments.
  Intelligent coordination of end-users energy demand for the sustainable next-generation energy network
  Dr M Abbod
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As part of energy demand and sustainability of future energy grid, energy generation, transmission and distribution; a more systematic and proactive approach for the next-generation electric grid is necessary to be smart, environmental friendly and sustainable enough to cope with the explosive growth in the energy demand globally.
  Coronal Heating by MHD Waves
  Prof I De Moortel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question why the Sun’s outer atmosphere (corona) is so much hotter than the solar surface (photosphere) remains one of the most challenging open problems in Solar Physics.
  Multi-objective Optimisation of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr A Maheri, Prof R McKenna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In planning and sizing of hybrid renewable energy systems two conflicting objectives, namely, the cost of the produced energy and the reliability of the system must be optimised simultaneously via a multi-objective optimisation process [1-3].
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
