Controller Design and Integration of Laying of Subsea Cables to Harness Oceanic and Tidal Power

Leads: Dean Steinke, Dynamic Systems Analysis Ltd. and Dr. Rickey Dubay, University of New Brunswick

Funding: NSERC

Project Duration: July 1, 2014 - Dec 31, 2014

The project aims to identify control strategies for laying of cable in high flow environments as found at tidal energy sites. Dr. Rickey Dubay's team at UNB is using DSA's ProteusDS software to simulate cable lay operations, and determine methods for control of cable payout based on environmental input such as current speed and seabed bathymetry.
