The Wind and Marine Energy Systems CDT is pleased to announce the date for futureWind&Marine 2020!

Happening on:

Thursday 5th March 2020 @ the Technology Innovation Centre, Glasgow

There are a number of exciting talks being planned, including eight PhD students who will be presenting their research on:

Condition Monitoring 

  • Thermal modelling of wind turbine gearboxes for condition monitoring and fault detection
  • Applications of machine learning in diagnostics and prognostics of wind turbine generators

Wakes and Dynamic Structural Loading

  • Influence of Low Level Jet wind phenomena on turbine loading and fatigue life in the North Sea
  • Wind turbine control strategies for mitigating tower fatigue loads using wind roses or wake detection

Power Systems and Control

  • Introducing the Partial Frequency Energy Converter: A novel technology to enable low-frequency AC connections for offshore wind
  • A comparison of curtailment strategies for reducing lifetime damage equivalent loads across a windfarm


  • An investigation of wind turbine blade erosion due to rain and weathering
  • Fatigue loads alleviation by morphing blades for wind and tidal turbines
