Northwestern Industrial Engineering Client Project

July 3, 2023

Check out the latest contributors to Sunairio's tech: Nick, Natalie, Kim, Katie and Gabe--engineering students at Northwestern University who just finished their junior year. Sunairio sponsored a student project (IEMS 394) and asked this team to help us understand wind turbine icing dynamics in real life. Icing events can be catastrophic for wind farm energy production--and they're really hard to predict. But now we have a probabilistic wind turbine icing model that quantifies the risk of these events (in terms of probability of capacity factor loss) as a function of weather. All thanks to the hard work of this Northwestern University engineering student team!
