Wind turbine model validation: Fusion of simulation and measurement data
Paper in proceedings, 2014

A new turbine model validation technique that is based on adaptation of look-up tables is described this paper. Simulation results from the VIDYN turbine simulation program and measurements from Big Glenn wind turbine, located outside Gothenburg, Sweden are used as an input to this new model validation technique. The models of the flapwise bending moment and power coefficient are validated for Big Glenn turbine. Measurement data are acquired during normal turbine operation. Verification results show good agreement between model outputs and measured data. The method allows prediction in a wide range of turbine operating variables, using only few measured points.
