Developments in turbine components

Turbine technology

When: Wednesday, 26 September 2018, 11:00 - 12:15
Where: Room: Hamburg

Session description

The focus of this session is on turbine component analysis. The presentations will address turbine components including monopile foundations, blades and drivetrains. The presenters will provide perspectives from industry, research and academia. A range of key activities relating to turbine components will be covered, including: design, modelling, cost evaluation and testing. The activities also build upon well-established baselines such as the NREL 5 MW turbine and PISA framework.
