Dr. Wenxian Yang (Editorial Board)

Newcastle University, United Kingdom

Dr Wenxian Yang is currently a Senior Lecturer in Offshore Renewable Energy with Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. With expertise in marine and offshore renewable energy, Dr Yang has been consistently striving to lower the leverage cost of offshore renewable power in recent years by developing various approaches using the knowledge in multiple disciplines, e.g. (1) increasing availability and reducing operation and maintenance cost of offshore wind turbines by developing advanced condition monitoring techniques; (2) assuring the safety of the fixed foundation of offshore wind turbines by designing and developing countermeasure devices against scour caused by tidal current; (3) improving the power generation efficiency of wind and tidal turbine by developing biomimetic airfoil/hydrofoil technologies; (4) increasing the economic return of offshore floating wind turbines by developing motion-stable floating platform technologies. Recently, in order to meet the urgent requirement by the rapidly growing offshore wind market, Dr Yang’s research interest is also extended to addressing the challenging issues existing in the design and application of offshore wind farm support vessels. For example, (5) in view of the unsatisfactory seakeeping performance of offshore wind farm crew transfer vessel, he has developed a new cost-effective technique dedicatedly for stabilizing wind farm crew transfer vessels; to enable quickly access to those offshore wind turbines located at far offshore distance whilst consuming less fuel and achieving better seakeeping performance, he developed a number of innovative ship design techniques to address the issue. In 2017, his research on the ageing issues of wind turbine components and assemblies was identified by Renewable Energy Global Innovation as a key contribution to the excellence in renewable and clean energy research.
