19 November 2012 - Wind Resource Feasibilty Study Proposal

[October 2009] Proposal to PSU, Portland, OR, USA to perform vibrational and noise mitigating research for a small, urban, rooftop wind turbine system. Impetus was due to mechanical noise issues propagated by aerodynamic revelations in early 2009 when analyzing wind resource data from the Warwick Wind Trials.

Scope of Work Proposal for Portland State University (PSU) MME CAPSTONE Curriculum

[Februrary 2009] Performed research, investigate opportunities siting small wind turbines in the built environment using the Warwick Wind Trials (WWT) data the first study [2007-08] of its kind in the world to monitor 26 rooftop wind installations in the Midlands of the UK.
