The project will consider the sequence “from wind to fatigue life”, and by simulation investigate how the site-specific conditions (terrain, forest, etc.) affect the fatigue life of turbines. The project involves CFD simulations to investigate the flow field, wind turbine system simulations to evaluate how this flow field affects wind turbine operation and lifetime of drive train components, and development of maintenance algorithm to reduce down-time and repair waiting time.
