PhD position 2 (f/m/d): Impact dynamic atmosphere on wind farm performance

Are you fascinated by fluid mechanics, the intricacies of turbulence, the capabilities of high-performance computing, and the promise of wind energy? If you are enthusiastic about groundbreaking research and keen to join a diverse team, we offer an exhilarating opportunity for you. We are looking for a dedicated PhD candidate to investigate the impact of dynamic atmospheric condition changes throughout the day on wind farm performance. This project invites you to explore the effects of time-varying atmospheric changes, moving beyond conventional simulations of stationary atmospheric conditions. This PhD project is part of the ERC Consolidator Grant project WINDFLOW, which strives to develop groundbreaking large-eddy simulation strategies for wind farm flows. Your research will examine the interplay between dynamic shifts in large-scale atmospheric conditions, as described by weather models, and the performance of large wind farms. This PhD provides the opportunity to develop novel insights into atmospheric dynamics and leverage this to improve wind farm efficiency. Join us in pushing the boundaries of wind energy fluid mechanics research! More details can be found here.
