N/A (Currently Underway)
This project aims at feasibility study of a novel approach to robustly suppress subsea cable vibrations and increase the power transmission resiliency by using retrofittable passive Nonlinear Energy Sinks (NESs).
A retrofit solution to significantly stabilize the offshore wind platform motions and at the same time to harvest the wind and wave induced vibrations.
Report of lab test for the feasibility of the proposed NES for subsea cable, compared with the baseline.
