Skills to be acquired in this module
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:
o understand the basic concept of an aero-servo-elastic computer code to determine the unsteady aerodynamic loads,
o derive and validate the required parameters to model the aero-hydro-elastic response of a wind turbine,
o identify and interpret the required empirical parameters to correct the blade element momentum (BEM) method with respect to dynamic inflow, unsteady airfoil aerodynamics (dynamic stall), yawed flow, dynamic wake modeling,
o explain the effects of the different models on the resulting time series and validate the code,
o interpret design standards for on- and offshore wind tur- bines, select the required load cases according to site-specific environmental data,
o identify the dimensioning load cases and calculate design loads for different main components of a wind turbine.
