  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  Economic and environmental impact analysis of wind turbine based on alternative materials (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/CHEUNG)
  Dr W Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cleaner environmental technologies offer various benefits such as reduced emissions, less waste and cost savings from minimum energy and resource requirements during production and operation.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in The effect of non-neutral winds on wind power aerodynamics
  Dr M Placidi, Dr P Hancock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Renewable sources provided 29.3% of the electricity generated in the UK in 2017, with offshore wind turbines producing some 21% of that, and registering an increased capacity of 27% during the same year [1]; these trends are predicted to grow in line with 2030 and 2050 targets [2].
  Wind Turbine Operation and Maintenance in Extreme Conditions – How will Springing and Ringing Loads Have an Influence on O&M?
  Dr X Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. The mix of energy supply worldwide has changed dramatically in the last few decades. In the UK, in order to tackle climate change and increasing energy consumption, there has been a clear movement from fossil towards renewable and sustainable energy sources.
  Integrated Aero/Hydro/Structural Analysis and Multi-objective Optimisation of Floating Wind Turbines
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Floating wind energy is potentially a highly scalable future energy source. Almost 80% of the Europe wind resources are in waters with +60 m depth, where floating offshore wind turbines are deemed to be the natural solutions.
  Autonomous Systems for Offshore Wind O&M – Strategies, Guidelines, and Tools; Engineering – PhD (Funded)
  Dr A Pillai, Dr L Johanning
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD at the University of Exeter is sponsored by EDF Energy which is at the forefront of the drive towards low carbon electricity generation.
  Multiscale modelling of natural fibre based hybrid composite laminates
  Dr K Katnam, Dr K Davey, Dr A Bottacin-Busolin
Application Deadline: 23 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

If you are looking for an exciting research position in the area of advanced composite materials and computational mechanics, this is an excellent opportunity for you.
  Enhanced structural design for floating offshore wind turbines
  Dr A Bagheri Sabbagh, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are one of the renewable sources of energy which is becoming a sustainable alternative way to produce energy, and which is growing fast all around the world.
  Virtual reality energy system simulation for future zero mission power generation
  Prof M Pourkashanian
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the steady increase in the penetrations of wind and other renewable energy to the power generation mix, conventional power generations are required to operate with more flexibility, wider fuel date and substantially lower emission.
  Synthetic storage within hybrid diesel microgrids
  Prof M Negnevitsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Tasmania offers you a great lifestyle and a truly exceptional study experience in a unique natural environment.
  Multi-objective Optimisation of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In planning and sizing of hybrid energy systems the conflicting objectives cost and performance are to be optimised simultaneously via a multi-objective optimisation process [1-2].
  Community Building Energy Modelling for Flexibility
  Dr B Howard, Mr B Young
Application Deadline: 22 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Protection of offshore wind turbines using low-cost, damage tolerant, sacrificial coatings (ProCoat) (NSIRC 179)
  Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitigating corrosion of offshore structures requires the use of cathodic protection often in conjunction with dielectric coatings.
  Machine Learning Approaches for Optimising Battery Operations in Smart Grids
  Dr S Azad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate various machine learning approaches to optimise battery operations in the smart grid. Battery storage plays a vital role in smoothing out the fluctuations in energy demand and generation from distributed renewable sources.
