U.S. DOE funds new hybrid testing capabilities for offshore wind energy systems

Image: PixabayImage: Pixabay
Full-scale, on-site physical testing of offshore wind energy technologies is logistically difficult, expensive, and time-consuming for early evaluation of design concepts. To simulate real-life situations, WETO funded facilities at three universities to test offshore wind energy components in a laboratory setting.

Official Press Release U.S. Department of Energy:

Facilities Expand U.S. Offshore Wind Energy Testing Capabilities

Wind Industry Profile of
Facilities Expand U.S. Offshore Wind Energy Testing Capabilities

A robotic arm imitates the wind. A soil box mimics the sea floor. And a grid simulator emulates weather and electrical events.

All three of these impersonators at Lehigh University, Clemson University, and Oregon State University represent new hybrid testing capabilities for offshore wind energy systems made possible with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO). Full-scale, on-site physical testing of offshore wind energy technologies is logistically difficult, expensive, and time-consuming for early evaluation of design concepts. To simulate real-life situations, WETO funded facilities at three universities to test offshore wind energy components in a laboratory setting. “Our hope is that these... ...
