This Research Associate position, based at the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility, will contribute to the HAPiWEC (Holistic Advanced Prototyping and Interfacing for Wave Energy Control) Project within the Institute for Energy Systems at the University of Edinburgh, which is funded by EPSRC and in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Strathclyde, with partnering organisations: Centrale Nantes (France); NREL (USA); Renewable Dynamics Ltd. (UK); Wave Energy Scotland (UK); and WEAMEC (France).
The role will involve collaborating with a team of researchers with expertise in numerical modelling, physical modelling, and wave energy control. Furthermore, a key element of this project is liaising with wider wave energy and broader control communities. The job therefore offers an excellent opportunity for individuals to gain experience working with multi-disciplinary teams in academia and industry.
Ultimately, this element of the project aims to provide a non-proprietary test rig which will be deployed in the University of Edinburgh’s FloWave test tank to support the development and equitable comparison of control methodologies. This role will lead on the delivery of this experimental programme, ensuring the equipment and experimental programme is fit for purpose. This will involve applying the knowledge gained from project stakeholders and the project’s numerical modelling partners and control experts to complete the design, construction and testing of the HAPiWEC test rig.
