Wetzel Engineering performs dynamic simulations of wind turbine systems using GH-BLADED, ADAMS/AeroDyn, and FAST/AeroDyn. We have developed custom automation tools that allow us to perform 4,000 to 8,000 independent simulations of turbine operation in order to satisfy the stringent requirements for loads certification according to the IEC 61400-1, -2, and -3 standards and the requirements of various certification agencies, including Germanischer Lloyd and DNV.

We perform Full Blade loads as per IEC and GL guidelines for:

  • Fatigue and Extreme Loads Calculations
  • Modeling of Off-Standard Load Conditions

Our technology allows us to perform full system loads for:

  • Turbine and Tower Loads
  • Advanced Dynamic Analysis
  • Loads Analysis for Non-Conventional Configurations: Dual Rotor Systems, Tidal Turbines, etc.
