bachelor / master thesis (d/f/m)

analysis, design and implemenation of a novel wind turbine HiL-simulator

Efficient and reliable testing of wind energy systems is crucial for a successful transition to 100% renewable energy. At conatys our mission is bringing intelligence to test benches in order to allow realistic, reliable and effective testing and certifying of wind turbines in the future.

We are constantly improving our HiL-simulator in order get the best results at test benches. Currently, we are evaluating a new software and hardware structure of our HiL-simulator. For this, we are searching for motivated students to support this work. The detailed tasks will depend on the type of thesis and the progress our development made.

your contribution

You will contribute to our newly developed HiL-simulator, which allows multi-body and external simulators to be integrated safely. Thereby your thesis will address some of the following topics.

  • Re-design existing HiL-simulator concept, to integrate multi-body simulation
  • Run case-studies to analyze the performance and accuracy of the HiL-simualtor
  • Develop automatic evaluation fucntions for accuracy assessment
  • Implement new simulator concept on real-time hardware
