Reference turbines for scaling


Can anyone help me find if there is a repository for reference turbines when I want to scale from a specific MW rating to another. For example, from 1MW to 4 MW.
And how is the scaling usually done if I want to scale a 1MW turbine to a higher rating.

Dear @Karthik.Prakash,

A similar question regarding scaling was discussed previously in this forum, e.g., here: 2.5 MW WT.

The OpenFAST r-test ( provides several OpenFAST models of different sizes. The IEA Wind Task 37 repository contains a few other reference models: IEAWindTask37 · GitHub.

Best regards,
