NREL 5MW Rotor Geometry

Dear @Yao.Tian,

Being a reference wind turbine, there are many publications showing simulation results of the NREL 5-MW baseline wind turbine. Can you clarify what type of simulations you are considering?

The NREL 5-MW baseline wind turbine is not a real turbine, so full-scale measurements do not exist. There are many model-scale versions of the NREL 5-MW baseline turbine, where experimental data exist, but all of these have some variations relative to the original specification.

Best regards,

Dear @Jason.Jonkman

Thank you for your reply. I am studying the distributed force of the blade, the deformation of the blade and the flow characteristics of the wind turbine wake under various operating conditions of the NREL 5MW wind turbine. I would be grateful if you could recommend me some widely cited papers, or provide some experimental data on the relevant part.

Best regards,

dear @Jason.Jonkman

I’ve found some papers, which are very useful. Thanks all the same.

Best regards
