CCEFP Webinar to Cover Wind Turbine Efficiency and Electro-Hydraulic Actuators for Off-Road Machines

The 2019-20 CCEFP Webinar Series is underway and covers a number of fluid power research projects supported by the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation Research Supplements. The next episode, taking place November 13 at 12 pm CST, will feature the Increasing the Efficiency of Wind Turbines through Understanding of their Transient Responses project, presented by Kim Stelson at the University of Minnesota, and the Individual Electro-Hydraulic Actuators for Off-road Machines project, presented by Andrea Vacca at Purdue University. The presentations will give updates on each of the fluid power research projects and their impacts.

The webinar series is a great opportunity to learn more about fluid power research projects and how they benefit this industry as well as contribute to the emerging workforce. It is open to CCEFP industry consortium members, NFPA members, and academic partners of these organizations. The monthly webcast series will showcase a number of the other Research Supplement recipients throughout the upcoming months.

NFPA members can register for the CCEFP Webinar Series by contacting Alyssa at alyssa@umn.eduAfter registering, you will receive a confirmation email and relevant reminders containing information about joining the CCEFP Webinar.
