Room: Montmartre

State of art regarding new control devices and materials to reduce loads and extend life of blades with a direct impact on risks and costs for the application on new technology.

Learning objectives

  • Flow control devices to reduce load on turbine blades
  • Impact on risks and cost for the application on flap technology
  • Flap technology performance in real turbulence flow
  • Loads on blade root connections and pitch bearing
  • To know the application of different modeling alternatives

Presenter's biography

Biographies are supplied directly by presenters at EWEA 2015 and are published here unedited

Prof. Madsen is working at DTU Wind Energy, Campus Risø, with around 250 employees. During whole his professional carrier he has worked with wind energy research. The main research areas are wind turbine aerodynamics, aeroelasticity and aeroacoustics with particular focus on engineering model development for design codes and experimental validation. During the last 10 years research on smart blade technology has been a major activity. Prof. Madsen has a Msc. in Mechanical Engineering and a PhD from 1982 with a thesis on development of a flow model for vertical axis turbines.
