Dear Sir/Madam,
I appreciate this opportunity to provide further background information in support of my application
for the Ph.D. scholarship in Development of an advanced noise propagation model for noise optimiza-
tion in wind farm.
Technical Background
Wind energy has been a passion of mine for a long time. Having obtained a general knowledge in this
eld during my B.Sc. studies, I graduated with a thesis on wind turbine micro-siting analysis, where
I familiarized myself with the concept of resource assessment, as well as optimized placement of wind
turbines via linaerized and CFD based models. Subsequently, I was chosen for the Wind Energy M.Sc.
program at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) with a full scholarship for non EU-students. There
in Denmark, my general knowledge was transformed into a deeper understanding of the concepts and
continued with the implementation of them. I graduated from DTU with a thesis based upon develop-
ment of a pseudo-spectral 3D Navier Stokes solver with rotative actuator disk which was supervised
by Jens N. Srensen. Thereby I found the chance to develop a parallelized code from scratch with full
understanding of the background as opposed to clicking buttons of commercial programs with insuf-
cient understanding. After my graduation from DTU, I participated in the program called Research
Master in Fluid Dynamics at von Karman Institute, also known as VKI Diploma Course, with full
scholarship. My intention was to gain a broader perspective and deeper knowledge within the eld of
uid mechanics. Along with the courses taken at VKI, I worked on wind farm wakes experimentally
with scaled models at a large scale boundary layer wind tunnel. I carried out a fully independent
project, which I ultimately incorporated the improved version of the code that I had written for my
rst masters degree. Thereby I had a chance to tackle the similar problem with various methodologies
while becoming aware of the benets as well as the limitations of both, thus a validation procedure
was carried out. In addition to the technical contribution, the year at VKI helped me to push my limits
in terms of working load and also taught me how to conduct a research project via managing a team of
technicians and other engineers; as a newbie at the institute within certain time limits.
Non-Technical Background
Moreover, since theoretical education would not alone sufce to improve one

s competencies, in ad-
dition to the regular curriculum, I took part in extra-curricular activities in all the universities that
I have been in Turkey, Germany and Denmark. I administrated the

Student Association of Wind

in Turkey in 2010, which is currently an internationally renowned common platform com-

posed of 12 universities. During the start-up period, I found the chance to pave the way of fruitful
interaction between the university, public and private sector, which resulted long term collaborations
and sponsorships. In my rst semester at DTU I initiated and arranged an excursion for 25 students
to LM Wind Power, which was then funded by the wind energy department. I also was a member of
the wind powered vehicle team,


. I found the opportunity to participate in, and

contribute to the two annual international races in Den Helder, NL. Additionally, I was chosen from
among many European applicants for the

Wind Energy Workshop

at TU Delft, where I gained less

detailed, generic knowledge but from a complete different perspective.
Why a Ph.D. at DTU & Why this project
The proposed project is challenging and attractive due to number of reasons. Firstly, the noise issue
is one of the main impediments for societys acceptance of wind energy. With the increasing funda-
mental understanding, we are/will be capable of constructing low noise wind farms which eventually
will widen the usage of wind energy via increasing the public acceptance. Surely, I see DTU as an
important player within the eld and I am absolutely keen on contributing to it. Secondly, the project
requires a broad spectrum of knowledge where an optimization procedure is aimed as an end result. I
believe that my rst masters degree at DTU helped me to gain this large overview from single blade
aerodynamics to turbine aero-elasticity and eventually ow within wind farms and optimization pro-
cesses. In addition to this, my second masters degree at VKI helped me to focus more towards the
fundamental uid dynamics questions. This raised me to a certain level within this eld. I believe
that specically, the courses on aero-acoustics, CFD related courses and the well known VKI lecture
series which are free for internal students, will be helpful for me to carry out my Ph.D. studies on the
proposed project. During my educational background, I have worked both with computational and ex-
perimental approaches to uid dynamics, however I would like to continue within the numerical part
of it. This project is a very nice t for my background and my future aims. Moreover, I believe that my
capabilities and interests would perfectly t the DTU Wind Energy - Fluid Mechanics section, where I
have a familiarity with the ongoing projects, work ethic as well as with the section people.
Overall, I believe that I am a suitable candidate for the position and continuing my academic career
with a Ph.D. is my initial aim. I am aware that Ph.D. , different to many jobs at the industry, requires
a long lasting enthusiasm and determination. Since my bachelors studies I knew that I wanted to
pursue Ph.D in order to increase my knowledge via specialization. From the humanistic point of view,
I came back from Belgium making my mind to settle in Denmark, where the pioneer wind energy
research is being carried out, and a country where I feel more integrated. Thereby I will have the
utmost personal support from the people around, which will allow me to concentrate solely on the
In conclusion, I, Emre Barlas, with full awareness of my abilities, would like to take on the proposed
project as a Ph.D. candidate at DTU - Wind Energy, in order to nish it successfully.
Sincerely yours,
Emre Barlas
