One field of Aerospace Engineering is wind turbines due to their aerodynamic and structural designs, etc. These machines are one of the prominent systems for electricity generation in the world. Now, more than 90 countries use wind turbines for their electrical demand. In wind power industry, one of the research and development area is modeling of turbines. This is because wind turbine models are very important during the turbine design stage. They are used to predict the performance of turbines, design turbine controllers, and develop new turbine controller/protection algorithms. Before mass production, they allow the designer to see the behaviour of turbines in time under various wind conditions such uniform, normal and turbulent winds, different air densities, with different structural angles, etc. In this talk, how to model a wind turbine system is going to be covered along with the challenges.
