I am doing a simulation with cx100 blade. However, I tried to modify the case from NREL 5MW wind turbine to Micon 65/13M wind turbine (with cx100 blade) by using limited information from webpages. Finally I got my current case. As I mainly focus on the blade, I close all the DOF except FlapDOF1, FlapDOF2, and EdgeDOF. Then, I got a periodical deflection for blade, which is getting back and forth from -0.15 to 0.15, as shown below:
The power is also a fixed number for the whole period.
My worries are about:
- I am wondering how can I get a stable results like in the 5MW example. I want to get the curve of power with rises at the beginning and getting stable in the end. Should I release more DOF?
- If so, does anyone have an example for cx100? I can only find the examples for 5MW wind turbine. The information of Micon 65/13M wind turbine is really limited.
(BTW, after searching online, I got to know that the company/NEG Micon was merged with another Danish wind turbine manufacturer, Vestas. But in Vestas, there is nothing about Micon 65/13M either. It seems that the Sandia laboratory and NREL used to do some experiment on cx100, so I turned to here. )
I hope my worries will not violent the rules here. Sorry for bothering.
Many thanks for any help!
