Within the offshore wind team of EDF Energy R&D UK Centre there is an open 
position for a qualified Intern to join us at our London offices. Initially, it 
could be a 6 months internship with a potential to be extended for a longer 
period and/or become a PhD/EngD project. The ultimate goal of the project is to 
improve the accuracy of wind forecast for both onshore and offshore wind farms. 
The Intern will explore the following two subjects:
·                     High resolution probabilistic wind forecasting on short 
and medium term periods
Investigate in detail state-of-the-art methodologies, modelling tools, 
theoretical approaches and modelling results that are currently available both 
in industry and academia in the field of wind forecasting for wind energy 
applications. Special focus will be placed on the probabilistic methods, 
statistical approaches, and data assimilation techniques currently used for a 
more accurate wind forecast. The ensemble and nudging capabilities of a 
particular meteorological model (the Weather Research and Forecasting model) 
will be also investigated.
·                     Coupling of models (ocean – atmospheric – wave – CFD)
The intern will investigate the development of a coupled ocean – atmosphere – 
wave – CDF modelling system that could improve the current offshore 
meso-/micro-scale methodologies. Relevant studies, benefits, limitations and 
added value of having and developing such a modelling system will be explored.
Inquiries and CV to be sent at
