Automatic Design Method of Wind Turbine Tower and it’s Application
In order to solve the engineering application problems of parametric rapidly in design of wind turbine tower, an automatic design method of wind turbine tower is put forward first, and the automatic design model was built through analyzing the key parameters and parameters’ calculation relation in different cases: same taper tower design and variable taper tower design. The key parameters, height, diameter and wall thickness of the tower, are mainly considered. Then, an automatic design system of the wind turbine tower is developed and realized according to the model. Finally, the system effectiveness is verified through taking a wind turbine for example. The results show that the system can enhance the design efficiency and shorten the cycle times at the same time.
