NEESR-II A Seismic Study of Wind Turbines for Renewable Energy (WTRU)

The amount of electricity produced from the wind has steadily grown since its introduction in the 1980s and with the introduction of AB 32 is poised to grow substantially in California. Through support from the United States National Science Foundation (NSF) and specifically via the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) and Oak Creek Energy Systems (OCES), a Gigawatt Wind Energy pioneer, a multiyear investigation into the seismic behavior of wind turbines is underway at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).

This original research started with a forced and ambient vibration monitoring program at Oak Creek Energy Systems (OCES) with the assistance...
