|Proposal owner:||Manuel Almeida|
|Background:Describe the background situation that leads to this project proposal – why should we do this?||Development of a controller strategy and rotor optimization|
|Objective:||Improve rotor design, optimise structure dynamics|
|Description deliverable: Describe the product outcome of the project – what will be delivered, and in which format?||Componentwise loading, controller parameters|
|Approach: Described the methodology to be used in the project – how are we going to achieve our targets?||Use FAST (open source) code to model the full turbine. Structural data of the current model is necessary together with profile coeficients.|
FAST is usable for furling turbines therefore applicable for the case. Pre and Post-processing tools also available.
|Estimated capacity & competences needed:||Considerable structural dynamics, aerodynamics competences.|
Capacity: 1 mech/structural engineer with knowledge of low Re regimes, 2-4 months time. One person more for review process.
