CYBERLAB aims at studying offshore power grids that take the form of a lattice of marine structures, i.e. a vast set of floating structures interconnected by a shared mooring system.
Present simulation tools, experimental methods, and offshore standards are primarily developed for single floating bodies. Numerous additional challenges arise when it comes to the design and analysis of lattices, which have not been addressed thoroughly yet.
CYBERLAB aims at developing radically new (cyber-physical) empirical methods to understand the dynamic behaviour of such lattices.
