Today we announce the public release of the brand-new Simulation in Loop (SIL) interface for QBlade.
Get Started with QBlade and Python: A Perfect Match for Wind Turbine Simulation!
With this interface, you can now run QBlade’s advanced wind turbine simulations within the coding environment of your choice, including Python and Matlab.
This flexibility opens up a world of possibilities for wind turbine researchers, designers and engineers by providing an easy way of controlling the complete wind turbine setup and simulation loop within any external coding framework.
The now released SIL interface has already been applied in the following areas: turbine optimization, system identification, controller development, machine learning, digital twin development and co-simulation with other specialized simulation frameworks.
With the release of the SIL interface we also include an easy-to-use Python template, which enables you to get started quickly by importing the QBlade interface into Python through only a single line of code.
A template for Matlab will be provided soon…
More info and code examples are found in the SIL documentation.
