The seminars are an opportunity for exchange between PhD students and staff, as well as between the different teams of LHEEA.

This week :

>>  Gaël Clodic, a PhD student in the EMO team, will present his work on "Wind propulsion options for energy ship"

Abstract: A new concept has emerged for far offshore wind energy conversion (FARWIND concept). It consists of a ship propelled by wind sails towing a water turbine (see figure below). The water turbine produces electricity. The electricity is converted into a fuel (hydrogen for example). Thanks to the high winds encountered in the far offshore and the mobility of the ship, a high capacity factor of 70 to 80% is expected. When the tanks are full, the ship either sails to a terminal where the fuel is unloaded or directly unloads at sea (via an off-shore platform or in a tanker).
Then, it can start a new charging cycle.

In my thesis, I first study the design and the technologic composition of the ship. In the first place, I studied a critical sub-system: the wind propulsion system. Indeed, in the recent years, some assisted wind propulsion
technologies for tanker have been developed (Flettner Rotors, kite wings, turbo-sails, rigid sails). In this presentation I will discuss advantages and drawbacks of those technologies for an application on a FARWIND ship.
