Developments in turbine components
When: Wednesday, 26 September 2018, 11:00 - 12:15
Where: Room: Hamburg
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.
- Delegates will be able to summarise how different stakeholders in our sector are tackling the analysis of turbines at a component level.
- Delegates will be able to detail at least three turbine components/sub-systems under analysis and explain these analyses from one or more of the following perspectives: design, modelling, cost evaluation and testing.
- Delegates will be able to identify the latest uses of established tools/methodologies such as the NREL 5 MW turbine and PISA framework and will also be introduced to lesser-known evaluations and modelling approaches for turbine component analysis.
