The Postdoc will work with the Ship Hydromechanics group (Maritime & Transport Technology) and the Data-Driven group (Delft Center for Systems and Control). The goal of the project is to leverage sensor fusion techniques to predict the state of hydrofoil craft and assign control inputs to optimize its response to random wave excitation. Using the HEARP hydrofoil education and research platform at TU Delft as a case study, the Postdoc will design optimal sensor layouts on the platform to robustly quantify uncertain parameters and excitation factors and will exploit these results to obtain robust optimal controllers. Aided by the expertise of both research groups, she(he) will develop control algorithms that will be tested in physical experiments on the hydrofoil platform to quantify controller performance and hydrofoil reliability.
The department Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) of the faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at Delft University of Technology. The Centers' research mission is to conduct fundamental research in systems dynamics and control, involving dynamic modelling, advanced control theory, optimisation and signal analysis. The research is motivated by advanced technology development in physical imaging systems, renewable energy, robotics and transportation systems.
The essence of the department Maritime and Transport Technology is to develop, design, build and operate marine, dredging and transport systems and their equipment. New generation transport and marine systems have to be based on new concepts. This requires the further development of the knowledge of the dynamics and the physical processes involved in transport, dredging and marine systems, the logistics of the systems and the interaction between the equipment and control systems.
