September 26, 2013
Gordon Fellow Partick Karalekas, along with College of Engineering Professor Gregory Kowalski, and Free Flow Power CTO Edward Lovelace worked to develop a performance modeling tool for a new renewable energy technology.
The paper, titled “Modeling Hydrokinetic Turbine Performance in the Mississippi River” was published in the Marine Technical Society’s edition on Marine Renewable Energy Technology.
Free Flow Power is working to convert a river’s flowing energy to electricity with a specially designed turbine. Patrick’s work focuses on estimating the power output, reliability, and maintenance costs of the turbines.
Free Flow Power is a clean renewable energy company focusing on hydropower and hydro pumped storage as reliable, cost-effective sources of electricity and grid stability.
Patrick is currently employed as an engineer with the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company.
