Fully nonlinear aeroelastic tool for the simulation of wind turbines, WOBBE

WOBBE is a tool that can be used to investigate the aero-elastic stability of wind turbines. It can also be used for helicopters, but the development is currently focussing on wind turbines. The tool can run fully non-linear time simulations of rigid body models where these rigid bodies are interconnected by hinges and springs. The equations of motion do not need to be derived, enabling the user a.o. to easily change the models complexity.

BEM is used to calculate the aerodynamic forces. The induced velocity is calculated using dynamic inflow and it is assumed constant over the rotor swept area. The option of dynamic stall is included in the programme. Prandtl's tip correction can also be used.

To analyse the results an identification tool such as AerID can be used.
