Computational Fluid Dynamics for the wind and wave energy systems 

Renewable energy systems rely on the kinetic energy of wind and waves. The design of such systems require the correct prediction of the fluid behavior. This is only possible using special computational methods and the solution of non-linear differential equations describing the fluid motion.

  • Utilization of computational methods for the prediction of wind and wave motion
  • Design and optimization of wind and wave energy systems
  • Wind turbine aero-hydro-servo-elastic analysis with OpenFAST (including structural loads and the control algorithm of a wind turbine)
  • Power production and structural analysis for entire windfarm with FAST.Farm, including wake interactions and windfarm-wide control strategies
  • Aero-structural simulation of Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT)
  • Method development to predict and enhance lifetime of wind turbines under harsh operating conditions
  • Improvements in the open source software (e.g. OpenFOAM, Nektar++) towards the needs of the existing or future projects
