17:00 - 18:30 Aerodynamics
Turbine technology  
Onshore      Offshore    

Room: Montmartre

Aerodynamic performance with new designs, modifications on airfoil, simulation and assessment methods.

Learning objectives

  • To identify effects of leading edge modifications on airfoil performance
  • How to design high performance of low lift airfoil families
  • To select new simulation method in aerodynamic design code
  • To better assess aerodynamic loads in wind farms at high wind speeds
  • To assess the difference in aerodynamic characteristics for 2 vs 3 blades rotors on 10MW WTG
