BEM simulation


I would like to enquire is it possible to run BEM simulation through SIL(python)? From what I have read so far, it only allows turbine simulation to be run in the script. Thanks.



Hello Rick,

you are correct, only time domain simulations are possible in the SLI, but not steady BEM.

However, you could setup an aerodynamic turbine definition, set the “Convergence Acceleration Time” to a positive value, say 100s, and then evaluate your rotor design for a given TSR, or rpm/windspeed combination.

These simulations will then converge very quickly and you essentially have a steady BEM in the SIL interface.
