Come and join UTSA students and industry representatives to learn about the challenges facing wind energy!

Wind energy is a form of renewable energy that has the potential to become a significant power generation source in the future; however, there are several technology areas that need to be developed before this can occur. This presentation will review the history of wind energy, look at the potential for wind power generation, address what technology areas still need development, and discuss the research that is currently being done to move wind power forward.

David Ransom is the presenter and is Principal Coordinator of the Machinery Structural Dynamics group at Southwest Research Institute. He has 16 years of experience in the turbomachinery industry including time spent at TurboCare, Boeing, and Southwest Research Institute. Mr. Ransom’s research interests are in the areas of dynamic system modeling and analysis, experimental programs, and root cause failure analysis. His work is mainly in the energy industry (including hydrocarbon based and renewable technologies) with some activity in the launch vehicle industry as well.
