Wednesday 20 November, 09:00-17:00
Messe Frankfurt, Forum, level C, room Substanz
In partnership with the Endowed Chair of Wind Energy (SWE) at the University of Stuttgart and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), in this workshop, Dr. Jonkman (NREL) will present the FAST wind turbine computer-aided engineering (CAE) software tool developed by NREL. Widely used internationally by primarily researchers and also in industry, this is of great interest to the wind energy community in Europe working with coupled simulation tools.
Through the US Department of Energy support, NREL has sponsored the development, verification, and validation of various CAE tools for prediction of wind turbine performance, loads, and response. The workshop will focus on the coupled wind turbine aero-hydro-servo-elastic CAE tool FAST. The workshop will present the basic theory, structure, capabilities, and future plans of this tool and sample simulations will be run to demonstrate its features. Attendees should bring a laptop if they wish to run the sample simulations.
