How does wake steering improve wind farm performance ❓

In this short video, we demonstrate the simulation of 12 wind turbines in a farm setting, highlighting the effectiveness of wake steering. The wake steering is enabled through a slight yaw offset of the first and second row turbines away from the main wind direction. This simulation, containing 12 aero-servo-elastic turbine instances, runs at speeds […]

OC7 Phase Ia Setup available

The full setup of the IEA Wind TCP Task 56 (OC7) Phase Ia cases are now available to download on QBlade.org. These simulations focus on experimental validation of low (difference) frequency viscous loads on FOWT platform designs and developing tuning practices for Morison coefficients. The setup utilizes QBlade’s new NBODY>1 feature to model hydrodynamic interactions
