Description This 3-4 month internship project will be part of the EUHorizon 2020 LiftWEC project: LiftWEC and
can be described as follows. The reliable prediction of the wave induced relative foil/fluid velocity is
important for the development of real time control strategies for cyclorotor based WECs. It is
planned to generate statistics relating to foil/fluid velocity changes from numerical simulations,
develop the statistical distribution hypothesis, and select the suitable prediction method. The
selected method will be programmed in Python and tested in simulation.
The candidate will have some experience with statistics and an interest in wave energy technology.
Notes The thesis includes a period abroad (at Maynooth University in Ireland), 3 to 8 months long (length to be defined together with the candidate).
