Course(s) Offered: Multiple Turbine Wakes (engineering, science & technology)
Course Level: Graduate (PhD)
Country to Study in: Denmark
The Wind Energy Division at the National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Risø DTU announces this call for PhD scholarship in Multiple Turbine Wakes.
Candidates should have a master’s degree in engineering, physics or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master’s degree.
Experience with wind energy or fluid dynamics, as well as good communication skills are considered advantageous for obtaining the position.
Qualified citizens of ANY country
The Wind Energy Division, National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Lyngby, Denmark
Fields of study
Doctoral level project in Multiple Turbine Wakes.
The project contains analysis of full scale experimental data as well as theoretical and numerical modeling.
The experimental analysis will be based on existing advanced 2D lidar (laser) measurements, where the resulting flow fields of two interacting wakes are recorded with large temporal and spatial resolution. The analysis will aim at characterization of both the resulting mean wind speed and turbulence fields.
In the theoretical/numerical part, advanced numerical simulations (actuator-line modeling in large eddy simulation or Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations) and more engineering/analytical type of models will be developed and verified against the available full scale data.
Number of awards
The scholarship will be applied throughout the whole duration of the doctoral project
