Exploring Wind Energy

The presenters will be Eric White, Director of Engineering, AWS Truewind, LLC and Dr. Lisa Osadciw, Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering at Syracuse University.

Registration and Networking at 5 p.m. Program 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Fee is $10 No Charge to New Economy Network Members.

Eric White will talk about the status of, and outlook for, the wind industry and some of the technology needs and opportunities, and his company's role in these areas. Dr. Osadciw will discuss diagnostics and prognostics technology as applied to wind turbines. This technology will provide operators with additional decision making power over their wind turbines and wind farm in general.

White's career, which began in the late 1980s, includes a range of activities in the alternative energy, power generation, and aerospace fields. White leads the Engineering Department at AWS Truewind He is leading activities in performance evaluation for operational wind farms, and development of innovative offshore resource assessment platforms. His background includes operational leadership and development of state of the art wind tunnel laboratories and fuel cell test facilities, technical leadership of product development for fuel cell systems, design and evaluation of steam turbine-generators, as well as various safety and reliability assessments. He holds four patents.

Dr. Lisa Ann Osadciw is currently an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering at Syracuse University, and a senior member of the IEEE.

She earned her B.S degree in Electrical Engineering (EE) from Iowa State University in 1986, her M.S. degree in EE from Syracuse University in 1990, and her PhD in EE from University of Rochester in 1998.

She previously held a position as staff research engineer with Lockheed Martin in radar and sonar systems. Over a 14 year period, her research at Lockheed Martin focused on designing optimum signals, developing new signal and data processors, sensor fusion, and analyzing the performance of various sensor systems including long range ground radars, short range weather radars, "over the horizon" radars, wind anemometers, and towed array sonar systems.
