Study on Large Wind Power Tower Structure Concept Optimization
This paper establishes the prestressed wind power tower model and studies on large wind power tower structure concept optimization for wind power development trends and problems. The results show that, no matter how weight of steel tower, or the amount of base concrete earthwork, the prestressed wind power tower has the potential to reduce the construction cost with good prospects. And the conclusions can provide a useful reference for the wind power constructions.
