About the Project
The project aims at reducing the cost of offshore wind power by applying the preview-based control techniques to offshore wind farms. A model of wind evolution in offshore wind farms will be established through a data-based and physics-informed approach. The model will be then tested in the model predictive control of wind turbines. The project requires strong background in mathematical modelling and numerical simulations of fluid flow.
The project involves collaborations with several academic partners both nationally and internationally. It will provide the student an attractive training environment via affiliates within the research institutes and doctor training centers hosted by the Engineering Faculty at the University of Nottingham. The collaborative and multidisciplinary nature of the project will improve the employability of the candidate and enhance career prospects in both Academia and in Industry.
Prospective candidates should contact Dr. Xuerui Mao with a Cover Letter, CV and 2 letters of recommendations
