D. Sc. (Tech.) Charles Nutakor is a postdoctoral researcher at LUT University, School of Energy Systems, Finland. Charles works in the field of rotating machinery, focusing on machine element design and dynamics. Charles has been researching the efficiency and power loss models for various classes of wind turbine gearboxes and integrated hub drives. Other research activities Charles is involved in, include the lubrication of heavily loaded contacts and rotordynamics of high-speed electrical drives, where the focus is on electromechanical powertrains. Of the latest projects, during a two-year postdoctoral appointment at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Charles has been researching multibody dynamic modeling of gear and rolling element bearings in the WhiteWind project ( at DTU Wind and Energy System.
