Sensitivity of power to blade pitch with linearization

Dear Jason.

I am calculating the sensitivity of aerodynamic power to blade pitch with linearization.

I followed all the steps you mentioned in Gain Scheduling. However, I couldn’t obtain the sensitivity.

Could you help me? I attached my input files.

Thanks!!

Dear Daniel,

I’m sorry, but I don’t really understand your question. What problem are you running into? Your link doesn’t work – what steps are you following?

Best regards,

Dear Jason

I am sorry. I linked wrong address.

I modified the link to following link.

I followed all the steps for obtaining the sensitivity of blade pitch to power. I didn’t obtain what I wanted. There is no information in the D-Trnsmt Matrix. Could you help me?

Dear Daniel,

Your approach sounds correct, but I noticed that you have CompAero set to False in your FAST primary input file. CompAero needs to be set to True to compute aerodynamic loads from AeroDyn. I suspect you’ll get the results your expecting with that change.

Best regards,

Dear Jason.

It works well. Thank you!

Sincerely,
Daniel Kim.
