Multi-fidelity digital twin structural model for a sub-scale downwind wind turbine rotor blade

This paper presents the development of a multi-fidelity digital twin structural model (virtual model) of an as-built wind turbine blade. The goal is to develop and demonstrate an approach to produce an accurate and detailed model of the as-built …

A gravo-aeroelastically scaled wind turbine rotor at field-prototype scale with strict structural requirements

A new sub-scale field-prototype design solution is developed to realize the dynamics, structural response, and distributed loads (gravitational, aerodynamic, centrifugal) that are characteristic of a full-scale large, modern wind turbine rotor. Prior …

Design and Testing of a Scaled Demonstrator Turbine at the National Wind Technology Center

This paper discusses the design, manufacturing, and planned testing of a scaled demonstrator turbine as part of the Segmented Ultralight Morphing Rotor (SUMR) project funded by the Advanced Project Research Agency-Energy. The scaled demonstrator …
