3rd Biannual Wind Energy Systems Engineering Workshop

Thu, 11/20/2014 - 09:47
Hello everyone,

Registration for the 3rd biannual workshop on wind energy systems engineering is now open! Please register on the workshop website here:
http://www.nrel.gov/wind/systems_engine ... _2015.html
Note that there is a discounted registration fee before December 15th, 2014.

This year’s workshop features an exciting line-up of speakers on the topic of integrated system analysis and design of wind turbines and plants. The full agenda is can be found here:

New wind.nrel.gov Website

Wed, 09/24/2014 - 16:23
We are happy to announce the release of the new http://nwtc.nrel.gov website, which replaces much of the old wind.nrel.gov website. The new website is still used for NREL/NWTC’s sharing of software and data with the wind engineering community, but sports a more modern, flexible, and easier-to-navigate interface. The new website also resolves a fundamental complaint with the previous website—that user information had to be entered separately with every download. You can browse the new website without logging in, but most downloads now require registering for an account and logging in with a username and password. While registration is now required for most downloads, the software and data are still free and open source.

Please note that most of the software and data available on the new website are the same as what was available on the old website, but the formatting and organization have changed. We are working to redirect all the old links, but if you find one that doesn't work, please use the new search feature in the upper left on the new site. In addition to the CAE tools that already exist, a new class of tools has been added as part of the new Wind-Plant Integrated Systems Design and Engineering Model (WISDEM) suite. These new models include design, sizing and cost tools as well as the overarching WISDEM software which integrates them together. Look for a more detailed announcement about the new models in the near future.

Enjoy!

Wind Plant Optimization and Systems Engineering newsletter

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 11:46
The Wind Plant Optimization and Systems Engineering Newsletter series from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Wind Energy Systems Engineering Initiative highlights current system approaches to the wind energy research, design, engineering, and development. Each quarterly edition provides short overviews of the integrated, interdisciplinary, and holistic work that is happening in this field. The wind industry community increasingly recognizes the need for a systems approach, and this newsletter serves to support stakeholders who engage with this important work.

First Quarter, Fiscal Year 2014 (Edition 2) is available here http://www.nrel.gov/wind/systems_engineering/news.html.
