Computational Control Co-design Approach for Offshore Wind Farm Optimization
Stony Brook University
Technical Challenge Area:
Fixed Structure Engineering
This project will develop and validate a novel modeling tool integrating high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models with atmospheric and ocean physics models and turbine control schema.
An open-source reduced order model (ROM) allowing practical analysis of the effects of real-life wind and wave conditions on turbines and arrays, with consideration of turbine control strategies such as yaw-based wake steering and individual or collective pitch control.
