Response, Aero- elasticity, Control and Hydrodynamics

 

Vores ambition er at udvikle nøjagtige belastninger og responsforudsigelser for næste generation af vindmøller. Ved forskning i avanceret aero-elasticitet, skræddersyet kontrol og præcis hydrodynamik, kan vi bestemme og optimere vindmølleydelsen fra landbaserede til flydende koncepter.

 

Vores videnskabelige udgangspunkt er aero-elasticitet, kontrol og hydrodynamik. Vi udvikler og vedligeholder HAWC2-pakken, som integrerer denne viden i rationel ingeniørsoftware. Vores applikationsstudier involverer belastningsanalyse for flydende vindmøller, aero-elastisk stabilitet og kontrol-design.
