Dear Wind Turbine Modeling Enthusiast,

A workshop on the wind turbine computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will be held on August 7 at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in conjunction with the inaugural meeting of the North American Wind Energy Academy (NAWEA). Please see the attached invitation for more information. Registration will be limited to approximately 50 people, and preference will be given to those attending the entire NAWEA meeting. Those interested in attending should submit the registration form included with the attached invitation. Please forward this invitation to those you think would be interested.

Best regards,

Dear All,

On August 7, 2012, I led a Wind Turbine Modeling Workshop at UMass in Amherst, MA. The presentations and sample simulations that were presented at this workshop are now available from: http://wind.nrel.gov/public/jjonkman/Pr ... AmherstMA/. The presentations and sample simulations provide an overview of the NREL-developed CAE tools, with a focus on the capabilities of FAST, AeroDyn, and HydroDyn.

Enjoy!

Best regards,

Dear Wind Turbine Modeling Enthusiast,

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind and Water Power Program will be hosting a workshop on the new modularization framework for the FAST wind turbine computer-aided engineering (CAE) tool. This workshop is specifically targeted at participants of the projects funded through DE-FOA-0000415 who are developing new offshore-related features for FAST, but other users of FAST who contribute (or are planning to contribute) to its development are encouraged to attend. This half-day workshop is free and will be held in conjunction with the AWEA OFFSHORE WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition in Virginia Beach, VA (USA) on October 8, 2012.

More information, including the workshop invitation, agenda, and registration form are attached. Registration will be limited to approximately 50 people, and preference will first be given to DE-FOA-0000415 project participants. We will open up a net-meeting for those who cannot attend in person. Those interested in attending (either in person or by net-meeting) should submit their registration form by September 21.

Best regards,
