Simpack Wind

Provides understanding of how to set up wind turbine models in Simpack, how to use the rotorblade generator with linear and nonlinear SIMBEAM elements, wind specific elements (including the interfaces to AeroDyn and HydroDyn)

Course Objectives

This course explains how to set up wind turbine models in Simpack, how to use the rotorblade generator with linear and nonlinear SIMBEAM elements, wind specific elements (including the interfaces to AeroDyn and HydroDyn), and how to use the Simpack wind load calculation tool. This course covers the following topics:

  • Simpack Wind turbine applications
  • Modeling structural components (onshore and offshore foundation, tower, nacelle)
  • Generating and modelling Rotorblades in Simpack
  • Conducting Aero- and Hydro-elastic simulation
  • Using the Load Calculations Tool
  • Modeling high fidelity drivetrains
  • Conducting a resonance analysis according to GL 2010

Who should attend and prerequisites

Simpack users planning to build up and analyze wind turbine models in Simpack. Before undertaking the course, you are required to have completed the Introduction to Simpack and Simpack Flexible Body Trainings.

Who should attend and prerequisites
