    An Advanced Tool to Analyse Flutter Onset Including Non-linear Blade Deflections, May 2015, AWEA WINDPOWER

    As many leading turbine manufacturers develop larger rotors with longer and more flexible blades, low torsional vibration mode frequencies give the potential for flutter and other blade instabilities. There is an increasing need for simulation tools to accurately predict flutter onset.

    Verification of Bladed against SACS for use in Integrated Offshore Support Structure Design - October 2014, AWEA Offshore WINDPOWER

    Dynamic analyses of a wind turbine support structure subject to wave loading have been carried out in Bladed and SACS. The member loading was compared at three locations in the jacket structure. The difference in extreme loading ranged from 0.8 to 7.8 percent. The difference in fatigue damaged equivalent load ranged from 0.9 to 8.0 percent.

    Validation of the Dynamic Wake Meander Model with AREVA M5000 Load Measurements at alpha ventus, February 2013, EWEA 2013

    The Dynamic Wake Meandering (DWM) model was developed for wake load simulations in on- and offshore wind farms. The present paper outlines the DWM model and describes its validation with two years of load measurement data obtained from an AREVA M5000-116 turbine in the alpha ventus wind farm.

    Dynamic Stall Model for Investigating Stall Flutter

    As wind turbine blades become larger there is a tendency for the blade torsional stiffness to reduce, producing the possibility of dynamic instability at moderate windspeeds.
  • Impact of large neighbouring wind farms on energy yield of offshore wind farms, EWEA Offshore Wind 2011

    Impact of large neighbouring wind farms on energy yield of offshore wind farms, EWEA Offshore Wind 2011

    For the success of a wind energy project, it is essential that the expected energy yields is accurately predicted, requiring the detailed assessment of both the wind resource and the interactions between the wind turbines.
