Wind Turbine Dynamics and Controls

Dynamics and control research in the WEC focuses on a range of issues, including active load control and blade stability. Collectively this work aims to develop innovative methods for reducing structural loads, to improve wind turbine performance, and to increase the fundamental understanding of blade dynamic behavior.

The specific research projects and faculty in this area are:
