Wind Energy Workshop
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) started organizing Wind Turbine Condition Monitoring workshops in 2009, with an event planned to be every other year events (presentations given at the 2011 workshop are available here. This year, NREL is working with the Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) society to sponsor a 2 day Wind Energy Workshop on Quantifying the Need and Impact of PHM on reliability and operating cost of wind energy. It will be held in conjunction with the PHM society’s annual conference (PHM13) this October 15/16. It brings together experts from the PHM community and the Wind Energy community and provides an ideal forum for technical interchange and exploring the transfer of PHM capabilities from other industries to Wind Energy. Day 1 of the event is a series of panel discussion, while Day 2 is planned to concentrate on technical papers as well some panel discussions.
The presentation lineup for Day 1: 15 October 2013 is a series of panel discussions, as listed below:
