Research topic
Design limits for very large wind turbines – towards an integrated turbine model

Research background and objectives

  • Investigation of the effects of scaling and appropriate models and analysis methods
  • Integration of turbine design data and remote operation of software tools
  • Assess potential and specify future development for all-turbine design tools
  • Assessment of potential turbine design limits as device size becomes very large (>7.5MW)
