Personal profile


Hello, I am Suguang. I am a researcher at DTU Wind Energy. I am working on a couple of challenging and interesting projects supported by Denmark and the EU.
Currently, I am actively working on the following projects:
  • HiperWind: HIghly advanced Probabilistic design and Enhanced Reliability methods for high-value, cost-efficient offshore WIND
  • FloatStep

Previously I have participated in the following projects:

  • SELMA: Fail-safe structural optimization
  • InnoDyn: Integrated nonlinear analysis and optimization of dynamic systems
  • NoVib: The Nonlinear Tuned Vibration Absorber
  • MEMS Frequency Converters Based on Nonlinear Resonances

Research areas

  • Integrated floating wind turbine optimization: tower, floater, mooring system
  • More realistic environmental conditions for load assessment with Lidar measured data and LES simulation data: constrained turbulence, non-Gaussian turbulence, machine learning methods
  • Structural optimization and its applications: additive manufacturing, MEMS resonators, offshore support structures

Research and teaching information

Special course to master students:

  • Floating wind turbine: cost, response, and optimization

Supervision of master thesis projects:

  • Khalid Khyjman: Interactive wind farm layout optimization on handheld devices.
  • Michael Minh Phan: Optimization of a semi-submersible floating platform for a wind turbine.
  • Christos Vyrgiotis: Design and evaluation of a floating platform for the IEA 15MW.
