| || || |
The Energy Technology and Climate Change Laboratory (ETCC), and the Centre for Sound, Vibration and Smart Structures (CVS3), are research-driven and industry-oriented research groups at the Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University (ASU) in Egypt. Both groups are running an exciting three-year applied research project in collaboration with the United States’ Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Mansoura and Aswan Universities in Egypt. As a result, A number of research vacancies exist for successful candidates who will be expected to make world class scientific contributions addressing a number of high priority engineering problems pertaining to utility-scale wind power.
This project will develop an artificial intelligence (AI)-based wind farm yield-maximisation and decision support platform, which is useful for the deployment of wind energy in Egypt and the Middle East. MIT and ASU teams will build on the activities at ASU’s Wind Engineering Centre, and will develop a pre-commercial AI-enabled platform that will maximise the reliability and economic gain of Egypt’s wind farms. This will be achieved by working on novel wind-and-turbine physics coupling; integrated pumped hydro reverse osmosis system (IPHROS) optimisation; and efficient machine-learning control and prognosis algorithms. The solution developed by this project will be climate-relevant and aimed at regulators; planners; developers; and operators of wind farms.
This call for applications is made possible by the support of the American People through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The contents of this call are the sole responsibility of the Center of Excellence for Energy and do not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or the United States Government.
