Collegiate Wind Competition Teams

Ten returning teams are gearing up for participation in the Collegiate Wind Competition 2017 Technical Challenge, being held at the National Wind Technology Center in Boulder, Colorado on April 20–22, 2017. 

Teams that competed in the 2016 competition were asked to expand the capability of their turbine to operate in a multi-directional wind environment, conceptually to allow turbine yaw. This can be in the form of an updated turbine from the 2016 event or the development of a completely new wind turbine and/or load.

Read on to learn more about the 2017 teams and their 2016 competition turbines that they will be updating this year.
