Dr Lin Cui is the senior engineer in offshore renewable energy device and hybrid power system, and also the deputy director of marine renewable energy technology department at NOTC.
He has been engaged in the extensive research on wave energy conversion, hybrid renewable energy power system and power supply technology for offshore equipment since 2008. His expertise covers the design and development of wave energy converters and marine energy hybrid power systems, including the system architecture and overall design, numerical and physical modelling of converters, PTO system optimization, operational monitoring and assessment of prototypes or demonstration systems.
He led the research of multiple-body wave energy convertor modelling and physical model test in the ￥16M SOA funded project "Research on General Supporting Infrastructure for Marine Renewable Energy (2014)" and electrical control system development in the￥10M project "Industrialization of High Reliability Isolated Wind Power System in Island" funded by MIIT. He acted as the alternative representatives of IEA OES-TCP ExCo from 2011 to 2016 and the member of IOC/WESTPAC MRET Group from 2012 to 2014. In international scientific collaborations, he is the Co-I of EPSRC/Newton Fund projects EP/M020339/1 with Cranfield University and EP/M019942/1 with University of Exeter in offshore renewable energy collaboration between UK and China. He is also the Co-I of EPSRC/NERC-NSFC jointly funded project "Investigation of the novel challenges of an integrated offshore multi-purpose platform(EP/R007497/1)" and member of the high-level offshore renewable energy group for the five jointly funded projects.
