Systems Engineering Software Questions

Use this forum for questions regarding the Wind-Plant Integrated Systems Engineering & Design Model (WISDEM) software and associated design, sizing and cost tools (i.e. tools which feature an “SE” modifier and their associated utilities).

The forum here is meant primarily for questions regarding model functionality and underlying physics and theory. For software bugs, we prefer you use the issues page for the specific problem code. For instance, if you find a bug in the design and sizing tool DriveSE, please go to and submit a new issue there.

This forum is not to be used for questions on FAST and related Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) Tools including Marine Hydrokinetic (MHK) software.
