Feasibility of wind propulsion

Research topic

Feasibility of wind propulsion – impact on the propeller and engine (power plant) performance


Investigate performance of various wind propulsion systems

Assess the impact of the wind propulsion system on the propeller and engine performance


Develop a medium-fidelity wind propulsion system model

Adopt/Include added (sway and yaw) hydrodynamic ship resistance

Evaluate a coupled wind and propeller propulsion system


Limited validation of the coupled model, most likely only numerical

The result is a set of multiple promising designs of the propulsion machinery

Coordinator Role:

Dražen will facilitate the collaboration between Ph.D. students in WP 2-4
