Dynamics Simulation for Horizontal-Axis Wind Turbines

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study, the dynamic characteristics of three-blade horizontal¬-axis wind turbines were simulated, based on the aerodynamic software AeroDyn, wind turbine design software FAST and mechanical dynamics simulation software ADAMS. AeroDyn and FAST are Interface codes for ADAMS. As the pre-processor of ADAMS, FAST code helps to build wind turbine model as well as constrains ,while AeroDyn code applies wind field data to the model. At last the model was imported into ADAMS to be simulated. In this way, the dynamic operating characteristics of three-blade horizontal¬-axis wind turbines can be obtained. And the load-time curves of the blade roots can also be gotten. Results show that the method adopted is feasible and reliable.
