This application facilitates the exploration of the influence of key aspects of the Drive Train (the blade type, wind speed ranges, gearbox ratio, generator synchronous speed, etc.), and the definition of the “Operational Curve”, in the desired wind speed range, and computes the Power Curve and required evolution of the Pitch mechanism: this is a key parameter to size the Pitch mechanism.
It is a key application to explore the influence of modifications (i.e. ‘repowering‘) of existing Wind Turbines, to obtain the new Power Curve, and the check if the existing Pitch mechanism can be used.
