Static and Dynamic Characteristic Analysis of the Tower for Vertical Axis Wind Turbine Based on Finite Element Method
As an important part of the vertical axis wind turbine, the support structure should have high strength and stiffness. This article adopts finite element method to model a kind of tower structure of the vertical axis wind turbine and carry out static and modal analysis. The static and dynamic characteristic results of tower in this paper provide reference for optimization design the support structure of wind turbine further.
