Research Bio

The aim of the work is the development, implementation and assessment of various detection and compensation techniques to make best use of all the data that should be available to a wind turbine control system. The work should look to use measurements already collected on wind turbines or can be collected by standard cheap means. The work will look to utilise advanced algorithms or data processing techniques to make better use of all the available data. The work will also seek to assess the actual benefits, performing a cost/benefit analysis of the solutions.
