Wind turbines as inspiration for ships
Innovations from the wind energy sector seldom find their way to shipbuilding, despite undeniable similarities. Researchers in the areas of marine engineering and control engineering seize the opportunity offered by the cohesion programme to change this.
Wind turbine farms can generate much more energy
In order to generate more sustainable energy and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, an increasing number of wind turbines are appearing on the horizon. Especially in the sea, because they are not in anyone’s way there and more importantly there is simply much more space there.
Jan-Willem van Wingerden appointed professor of data driven control
Associate professor Jan-Willem van Wingerden has been appointed professor of data driven control at the Delft Centre for Systems and Control as of 12 December. Jan-Willem van Wingerden’s research focuses on the measurement and control technology of large-scale mechatronic systems that are propelled by a disruption such as wind or waves. His research is unique because it is on the interface of measurement and control technology and mechanical engineering.
Sergio Grammatico has been awarded an NWO TOP-Grant
Sergio Grammatico, assistant professor in the department DCSC, has been awarded a TOP-Grant for curiosity-driven research in Mathematics, module 2, for his research project “Complex Network Games: The Scenario Approach”. With this TOP-Grant, Sergio Grammatico is able to appoint a PhD candidate.
