NREL Wind Turbine Modeling Workshop
In partnership with the Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind Energy (NORCOWE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), a workshop on the FAST wind turbine computer-aided engineering (CAE) software tool developed by NREL will be held on September 11 – 12, 2014 in Bergen, Norway.
Through US Department of Energy support, NREL has sponsored the development, verification, and validation of various CAE tools for prediction of wind turbine performance, loads, and response.The workshop will focus on the coupled wind turbine aero-hydro-servo-elastic CAE tool FAST. The workshop will present the basic theory, structure, capabilities, and future plans of this tool and sample simulations will be run to demonstrate its features.Attendees should bring a laptop if they wish to run the sample simulations.
September 11, 2014; 9:00 – 17:00
September 12, 2014; 9:00 – 13:30
Venue: Rica Hotel Bergen.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for obtaining the reservation code to the hotel.
Jason Jonkman from NREL will lecture at the workshop, which is open to students (masters/PhD) and industry members with an engineering background in wind turbines. The workshop will be free of charge for NORCOWE members.
