Research and Innovation in U.S. Wind Won’t Die with Expiration of Federal Production Tax Credit

While one might be tempted by headlines to assume that wind-energy-related activity in the U.S. will come to a screeching halt at the end of the year, with the seemingly almost certain expiration of the federal production tax credit, that temptation would lead you astray.

At least, that was the suggestion that grew out of a […]

Designing a Better Wind Turbine

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Researchers with Sandia National Laboratories and Purdue University are using sensors and computational software to help design a better wind turbine.

The sensors are being placed on experimental turbines in Bushland, Texas, to provide enhanced capabilities to monitor and control the wind turbines. A team […]

Numerical Manufacturing And Design Tool (NuMAD)

NuMAD (Numerical Manufacturing And Design) is an open-source software tool written in Matlab which simplifies the process of creating a three-dimensional model of a wind turbine blade. The graphical, user-friendly tool manages all blade information including airfoils, materials, and material placement. NuMAD uses the blade information to generate input files for other tools:

The ANSYS® commercial […]
