Iam recently using OpenFast software and wanted to design a new blade consisting of a simple winglet at the end(with no sweep and cant angle=90) of the blade for determination of rotor power. I wanted to know whether wing turbine blade with winglets can be designed in the OpenFast software. If yes, then can you please tell me that how can I create BeamDyn blade and AeroDyn blade input file for the winglet wind turbine( In the forum, some have used VABS to design the BeamDyn blade input file). Are there any other preprocessor softwares that can generate those files with winglet blade.
A similar question was asked and answered in the following forum topic: Winglet.
