Dr. Yong Hoon Lee presented Multi-Body Modeling for Conceptual Design of Co-Located Ocean Renewable Energy and Aquaculture Systems at the ASME 2023 IDETC-CIE Conference

Publication Information Abstract This study presents a multi-body dynamic modeling approach for exploring and optimizing the novel co-location design of ocean-based renewable energy systems and aquaculture fishery systems. As both systems expand offshore to meet global energy and food demands, competition for limited oceanic space has become a growing concern. The co-location of these two distinctive systems offers a solution to this challenge by combining them in overlapping geographical locations while addressing their respective objectives and constraints. The study introduces …
