Sandia engineer wins IEEE award for wave research

Researcher at Sandia National Laboratories, Giorgio Bacelli, has received recognition for his wave energy research from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Bacelli was recognized for his contribution to the controls industry in the field of renewable ocean energy. Namely, he co-authored the paper that won the 2016 IEEE Control Systems Magazine Outstanding Paper Award.

The winning paper presents new numerical methods for formulating control problems for wave energy converters.

Bacelli said the new methodology will help developers integrate control systems into wave energy converters designs, which will result in greater power generation.

IEEE gives the award annually to recognize the article that offers the greatest benefits to the members of the Control Systems Society, Sandia Labs informed.

Bacelli said he co-wrote the paper, titled ‘Energy-Maximizing Control of Wave Energy Converters: The Development of Control System Technology to Optimize Their Operation,’ with John Ringwood and Francesco Fusco while completing his doctorate at Maynooth University in Ireland in 2014.

At Sandia Labs, Bacelli is currently involved in developing advanced control systems for wave energy converters to drive the wave energy industry toward commercialization.

IEEE is a professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. The association has more than 420,000 members in over 160 countries.

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) 2019

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) is where the energy transition takes place. It is Europe’s leading gathering of the entire offshore energy industry and your opportunity to network with highly qualified experts and professionals across global markets.

For more than 12 years OEEC is unique in bringing together the offshore energy industry sectors oil & gas, offshore wind and marine energy. More than 550 exhibitors from around the world present their newest services, projects and innovative products. On top of this OEEC presents international trade missions, pavilions, exclusive network lounges of the OEEC member club, the Startup Zone, matchmaking areas, the Stage and networking drinks. Approximately 12,000 professionals will visit the exhibition, take part in strategic discussions, immersive technical conference sessions focusing on the future and technical developments in the industry. Three days of networking and together shaping the future of energy.

So the question is not if but how you will be participating at Offshore Energy 2019.
