OFFER DESCRIPTION

The postdoctoral candidate will be affiliated within Laboratory of Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment (LHEEA) of Centrale Nantes,and will collaborate with researchers from two different research teams (DAUC, SEMREV+). He will interact with the industrial partner IDEOL that supports the project and owns and currently operates the floating wind turbine prototype FLOATGEN on the SEMREV sea test site.

They will be in charge of:

  • Setting-up and monitoring the scanning Lidar measurement campaigns, depending on the objectives of investigation (project driven)
  • Performing the data quality check and processing the obtained data sets to extract exploitable wind speed measurements
  • extracting the wind resource parameters that are important for the WT far-wake development
  • characterizing the WT far-wake properties (velocity deficit and added turbulence)
  • determining the influence of the real-time sea state and incoming flow on the wake behavior
  • proposing adaptations to existing steady and unsteady wake models to take the floating aspects into account
