Guidelines to optimize design processes in terms of cost and time-to-market while ensuring necessary standards when variants are introduced, during early stages of new concepts and as the industry moves to larger turbines.

  • Progress on smart rotor control using sensing strategies for optimal design
  • Probabilistic design framework to quantify uncertainties and reduce risk in design
  • New approach to validation of simulation models for grid studies to deliver variants earlier and economically
  • Time benefits through novel dual axis fatigue testing of blades

Learning objectives

  • Delegates will take away guidelines for the optimal design of smart rotor systems
  • Delegates will be able to implement a probabilistic design method enabling assessment of which uncertainties have most influence on overall COE
  • Delegates will be able to propose a feasible alternative to traditional validation with field measurement data
  • Delegates will be able  to advocate optimized dual axis fatigue testing of blades
This session will be chaired by: Michaela O'Donohoe, Director, Marketing & Business Development, Adwen, Spain
Peter Jamieson, Senior Technology Advisor, University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom
