Perot and Colleagues Funded to Develop Cutting-edge Software for Offshore Wind-turbine Simulations

Blair Perot

Blair Perot

Professor Blair Perot of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department is the principal investigator on a two-year, $1.18-million ARPA-E grant to support the creation of pioneering software for simulating offshore wind turbines. The new software will leverage an existing user animation interface called Blender to replace the currently used CAD software, which tends to have a steep learning curve, is commercial and expensive, and has a framework geared towards static views and design, not the complex, real-world dynamics of offshore wind turbines.
