The objective of the workshop is to bring international expertise together in order to address the prevailing issue of premature failure of energy systems and enhance the prediction tools of remaining useful life (RUL), by which the uncertainty of RUL prediction will be minimal.
In its second edition, the workshop will be held at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, USA, May 15-16, 2017, and will cover four important major topics related to Industry-Academia research:
Off Shore Wind Energy
Big Data (Internet-of-Things)
New Applications of Energy Harvesting
Emergent Technologies in Sensing
The experts that will be coming from within Brazil and USA (from academia, industry and government laboratories) will have expertise in the field of mechanical and electrical engineering, mathematics, computer programming, renewable energy, modeling and probabilistic analysis.
The workshop will revisit the state-of-the-art Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) research, the contemporary practice of the energy industry in implementing PHM and the uncertainties involved in predicting RUL.
