Analytical gradients in linear state-space models
An engineering model for dynamic wind power plant flow
An engineering method is developed for the prediction of dynamic flow through a wind power plant, in the presence of turbine control actions. The model is composed of a simplified steady-state boundary layer model of velocity deficits and turbulence, a dynamic wake model relating the rotor induction...
Lidars for Wind Tunnels - an IRPWind Joint Experiment Project
Measurement campaigns with continuous-wave Doppler Lidars (Light detection and ranging) developed at DTU Wind Energy in Denmark were performed in two very different wind tunnels. Firstly, a measurement campaign in a small icing wind tunnel chamber at VTT in Finland was performed with high frequency ...
Enhanced finite beam elements for wind turbine blades (AN 16.12.18)
Reduction of Aerodynamic States in the STAS Wind Turbine Module (AN 16.12.70)
Roadmap to the multidisciplinary design analysis and optimisation of wind energy systems
A research agenda is described to further encourage the application of Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimisation (MDAO) methodologies to wind energy systems. As a group of researchers closely collaborating within the International Energy Agency (IEA) Wind Task 37 for Wind Energy Systems Eng...

Basic controller tuning for large offshore wind turbines
Wind turbines are controlled through the electrical torque on the generator and the pitch of the blades. The tuning of the controller determines the dynamics of the system, which can then be good (smooth yet responsive) or bad (ineffective or unstable). A methodical investigation was conducted to de...
