Title - DTOcean: Optimal Design Tools for Ocean Energy Arrays
Abstract: DTOcean aims to accelerate the industrial development of ocean energy by providing shared-access design tools for wave and tidal energy converter arrays. The project is led by The University of Edinburgh and gathers together the experience of 18 partners from 11 countries, covering all aspects of array development and deployment.
This seminar will provide a general overview of the DTOcean project and some technical detail on the design of the electrical system architecture.
Adam Collin: Adam completed his PhD at The University of Edinburgh in the field of power system load modelling. He has been employed as a PDRA in the power systems area at the same institution since 2011. Although all previous research experience has been on dry land, he is currently learning to swim in the DTOcean project.
Anup Nambiar: Anup completed his PhD at The University of Edinburgh in the field of network integration and coordinated control of arrays of wave energy converters (WECs). He has been employed as a PDRA at the same institution since 2012 and has worked on projects related to wave-to-wire modelling and control of arrays of WECs.
The seminar team would like to thank the Engineering Graduate Society (EngGradSoc) for its funding and support of this seminar series.
