This internship takes place in the general context of the offshore wind energy development in Normandy. The development of new loads models for offshore wind turbines placed inside wind farms requires a good understanding of the physics, aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, etc and of their impacts on extreme and fatigue loads.
A whole range of models are available from the highly advanced Large Eddy Simulation codes to engineering type of models through specific models for wake deficit, wake meandering and wake turbulence & rotor unsteady aerodynamics,.
The technology development load team based in Rouen has been involved in the development of various new models for both rotor loads and wakes. The team has a good access to the whole operational database of Siemens Gamesa wind turbines and is looking for the support of 2 interns to help on the validation of the new loads rotor & wake models based on our experimental data.
Description du poste
Internship: New loads rotor & wake models validation internship for offshore wind farms 6 months with expected starting date in Sept 2019
Keywords : Renewable energy, aerodynamics, wake effects, validation, offshore wind farm, wind turbine, aeroelasticity, rotor unsteady aerodynamics
Goals of the internship
Integrated in a team of 8 engineers and PhDs, you will be based in our ADWEN/SGRE R&D center in Rouen. Your missions will be to:
• Contribute to the validation of the new wake & rotor loads models developed inside
SGRE Technology team.
• Analyse the experimental feedbacks and wind turbine live data and comparing them to the simulation results, contribute to the development of new modules to reach higher accuracies of the models
• Contribute to the optimization of the codes through new developments or to increase speed or numerical accuracy
