Koorosh Aslansefat is a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Hull. His research is on Data-driven Reliability-centred Evolutionary and Automated Maintenance for Offshore Wind Farms (DREAM) — a project funded by Électricité de France (EDF) Research in London.
His PhD combines data-analytics, optimisation algorithms that employ bioinspired algorithms, and advanced reliability and maintainability models. These models automate and optimise the planning of maintenance of offshore wind farms, taking into accounts factors such as weather and logistics.
Optimisation of maintenance reduces costs and extends the life of wind turbines, so reduces industrial waste. His research is contributing towards cheaper, clean energy, and a more sustainable environment and planet.
The IET Leslie H. Paddle Scholarship will enable Koorosh to disseminate his findings at conferences and reach out to potential users among renewable energy companies internationally.
