  • PhD in estimation and forecasting for wave energy applications, using moment-based methods.

1 PhD Position (4 year studentship@ €18k [tax free] per annum + fees) starting Sept./Oct. 2018 
The Centre for Ocean Energy Research (COER) at Maynooth University, Ireland has a further opportunity for well-qualified applicants interested in undertaking a research degree at PhD level. 

The PhD project is in estimation and forecasting for wave energy applications, using moment-based methods. A variety of control algorithms have been developed for wave energy devices (WEDs), which provide optimal load force signals for a WED, given current and future knowledge of the excitation force on the device. However, the wave excitation force cannot be measured directly and future knowledge of the excitation force is required for the majority of WED controllers, which are non-causal.
