EPSRC grant to advance how drones can be used to generate electricity - The...

The project aims to address this challenge using bifurcation and continuation methods. These numerical techniques have been successfully used in aircraft dynamic studies to predict dangerous behaviours such as pilot-induced oscillation, flutter, and spin.

“By replacing existing techniques with bifurcation methods, AWES can achieve significant cost savings and improved performance that will ultimately bring this technology closer to commercialisation,” Dr Nguyen added.

Congratulations Duc - a good chunk of funding getting the UK back on the AWES map
