Distributed Wind Aeroelastic Modeling (dWAM)

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


Aeroelastic modeling is the primary method for the structural and performance assessment of any wind turbine. These tools provide an understanding of the impact of design parameters on turbine loading and power response before operating in the field. Despite these advantages, the use of aeroelastic modeling in the distributed wind energy industry is limited. This project aims to improve the aeroelastic modeling tools for distributed wind turbines to enable the design and certification of optimized turbine technology with a competitive cost of energy.
