Nuh Erdogan
UCC Energy Transition, Climate Action, Blue Economy Energy Management

Nuh is a Research Fellow of MaREI Research center, UCC, Cork Ireland. His research focus is ocean renewable energy systems from an electrical engineering perspective.

  • Project manager of the E-fleet project. He seeks to discover ways to maintain a fully integrated electric vehicle (EV) charging system from renewable energy sources to facilitate broader EV adoption.
  • Technical lead of TAOIDE project. His responsibilities include the development of the test set up for the electrical PTO of the tidal system, including generator, gearbox, PLCs, industrial drives, as well as testing the mechanical bearings and seals in a closed seawater system by implementing and testing various control schemes with the variable frequency drives in simulation and hardware, as well as health monitoring systems using various sensors and data processing with industrial PLCs.

He has over ten years of research and teaching experience in electric power engineering. He has participated in several international projects funded by ESF, NSF, and H2020. Prior to joining MaREI, he worked as a post-doctoral research scholar at the University of Texas, Arlington, and the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. His research interest included energy management and grid integration of distributed renewable resources including plug-in electric vehicles and real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation and testing of electromechanical energy conversion systems. In addition to these, he had an R&D Program development, implementation, and project management experience in the government research funding agency of Turkey. He has also solid experience in power engineering education, teaching a broad range of undergrad and grad-level courses at several universities including the University of Texas, Arlington, Atilim University, and TOBB Economy and Technology University.
