Abstract:

This report reviews the Westinghouse Advanced Systems Technology Report. The review is responsive in providing Ocean Engineering support to ERDA on Wind Energy Conversion System WECS studies. The report addresses several fundamental issues which are apparent at this stage of the Westinghouse WECS study. These are adequacy of the study plan and project management to support the ERDA objectives, and adequacy of the submitted final reports Tasks B and C to support the other Task studies which are in progress. Based on the overall review, specific recommendations are made with respect to the two Westinghouse reports on a task-by-task basis. References and attachments are included. Keywords Wind energy Offshore energy.
