Investigation of the Validity of BEM for Simulation of Wind Turbines in Complex Load Cases, Comparison with Experiment and CFD
The Blade Element Momentum can provide sufficient good results in most general load cases. However, complex three dimensional flow phenomena which can occur during the operation of wind turbines cannot be captured by the basic BEM theory and have to be included by correction models for the specific phenomena. CFD methods can help to get a more complete picture of the aerodynamics even in complicated cases. Download the whitepaper for more information.
