Wind Engineer / Scientist II, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
BiographyLiliana Haus is an Engineer/Scientist II in the Wind Generation Program at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). Her research focuses primarily on applications of data analytics in wind energy to support the advancement of wind turbine performance and operation. Prior to joining EPRI in 2020, Haus conducted research in dynamic modeling and structural design of renewable energy systems at the University of Texas at Dallas for over 3 years. During this time, she developed and validated a coupled dynamics model of the Sandia point absorber-style wave energy converter and created a calibrated aero-servo-structural digital twin model of a utility-scale wind turbine using an intentionally limited data set. She wrote a Master’s thesis and two journal papers over these research projects.
