Development of digital twin models for offshore wind farms


   Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering

  Prof Athanasios Kolios  Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

About the Project

WAMSS-CDT (Wind and Marine Energy Systems and Structures) is an EPSRC funded centre aiming to train ninety Engineering Doctorate (EngD) and PhD students over an eight-year period commencing in 2019. This is a collaborative partnership between the University of Strathclyde, University of Edinburgh and the University of Oxford. This centre offers the UK’s only comprehensive doctoral training programme in Wind & Marine Energy Systems & Structures (CDT-WAMESS), bringing together the leading UK research groups in Wind Energy and Offshore Structures at Strathclyde, Marine Energy at the University of Edinburgh and Offshore Structures at the University of Oxford.

This opportunity is for research into development of cyber-physical models for critical offshore wind sub-systems, through a combination of advanced data analytics and high-fidelity analytical models that will be calibrated against operational data for the evaluation of the remaining life and planning of appropriate maintenance strategies. The position will potentially include secondment to an industrial partner to give the researcher appropriate insights to current industry best practice, access to data and specialist tools.

The studentship is available to UK and eligible EU citizens with (or about to obtain) a minimum of a 2.1 or a Masters degree in Engineering/Computer Science/Mathematics. This competitive studentship will commence in October 2021 and will cover University fees and a monthly stipend.
