Wind Turbine Blade Design Optimization
In order to achieve the highest possible energy production from a given platform, optimization of the blades is critical. This includes the traditional disciplines of aerodynamic and structural performance, as well as material selection, design concept selection, and consideration of logistics and manufacturing constraints.
In this session we present novel design concepts for advanced wind turbine blades, including advanced materials, structural concepts, and manufacturing/ logistics architectures. The benefits of the Modular Wind Energy blade architecture to increase energy production, reduce loads, and improve overall turbine performance are demonstrated.
