Internship - Test Rig System & Analysis

CorPower has invested in advanced dry testing capabilities by developing bespoke test rigs capable of accurately simulating the loading the WEC devices will experience in the ocean, starting in a controlled machine hall environment.

The candidate will be responsible for extending the existing prototype model in order to be able to perform numerical simulations of the coupled generator + test bench system. The multiphysics model of the system includes controllers, a complete representation of the coupled mechanical system, electrical models of the motors and generators, and a hydro-dynamic model (wave-buoy interactions). The purpose of this model is to understand the dynamics of the system. Simulation results will be used for of the test bench.

The internship is part of the research project, HiWave5, funded by the Swedish Energy Agency.


Required skills:

  • Experience of coding and simulation
  • Good knowledge of control theory
  • Fluent in English
  • Fast learner 


  • Experience with Matlab/Simulink
  • Interest and understanding of large complex machines


Technical field? Mechanical Engineering, System engineering, Control engineering

When? Early 2020, at least 3 months, preferably 5 to 6 months

Scope? Full time
