Idling reference data for IEA 15MW in yaw misalignment

I was wondering if ‘objective’ reference data are available in the public domain, e.g. papers or reports, for the loads induced by the IEA 15MW RWTG for idling condition in uniform inflow at different yaw misalignment angles. On the IEA 15MW RWTG website the performance tables only include data for wind speeds below cut out for the aligned case.

Best, Duncan

Hello Duncan,

Thanks for your interest in the data for the IEA Wind 15-MW reference turbine. We did not publish and do not readily have the loads information you are looking for. Also, given the updates and corrections to the model definition files since the initial release, we do not advise using the loads data in the original published report. Instead, we recommend that users run the current OpenFAST or HAWC2 model input files for the DLCs they are interested in.

Cheers,
Garrett
