Abstract

In this work, aero-elastic solver predictions with HAWC2 are compared with measured data from a VESTAS V52 wind turbine situated at DTU campus Risø. Nearly one year of several measured wind conditions were considered for selection of loads and performance simulations. A new methodology for adjusting strain gauge (SG) calibrations originally from blade pull testing over time is presented. As a result, we show and discuss the different predictions on power performance and compare results with measured blade loads, under the condition of adjusting blade SG pull test calibration for temperature and time degradation effects.
