Turbine technology  
Onshore      Offshore    


Room: Montmartre

The session will discuss the following topics:

  • Analysis of actual wind turbine failures, of blades and towers, due to super typhoon Usagi
  • Detailed simulation of floating offshore wind turbine using coupled CFD, SPH and multibody models
  • Contribution of wake effects on the fatigue loads at above rated wind speeds
  • Development and testing of video-based motion analysis at wind turbine

Learning objectives

Delegates will be able to:

  • understand possible rootcause and load conditions that can lead  to wind turbine structural failure during typhoon
  • become familiar with the simulation methodology that combine detailed fluid-structure interaction models for floating wind turbines
  • understand the contribution of the wake effects for the fatigue load and how to take that into account using DWM model
  • assess the advantages of video-based motion analysis and its practical applications for wind turbines  
This session will be chaired by: Po Wen Cheng, Professor, Professor, University of Stuttgart, Germany
