A certification firm has started a project to evaluate the LMS Samtech software tool SAMCEF For Wind Turbines (S4WT). The software allows simulating the complete dynamic behavior of wind turbines under realistic wind conditions. The objective of the project is to validate and to certify S4WT for the computation of aero-elastic, wind turbine design loads according to the certification standards of GL Renewables Certification.
A key element for wind-turbine development, aero-elastic simulations provide the mechanical load assumptions on the different turbine components, which can be expected during the turbine’s lifetime. GL Renewables Certification, experienced certifying wind-turbine loads, will carry out detailed comparisons between in-house aero-elastic software tools and S4WT.
