R&D: MOMENTA project to improve the forecast of aeroelastic loads induced by the wake of a wind turbine on another
News - 4 October 2019
The R&D project MOMENTA (farM rOtor ModEl accouNting aTmospheric wAke turbulence) is from a partnership between VALEMO, the LHEEA ((Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment), the IFPEN (French Institute of Petroleum, New Energies), the Aerology laboratory and PRISME laboratory (Multidisciplinary in the general domain of engineering sciences).
The objective is to improve the forecast of aeroelastic loads induced by the wake of a wind turbine on another. The approach is original since we have a coupling between measurements made by UAV on an operating wind turbine and wind tunnel measurements. Moreover, numerical simulations will be done with tools that are either open source or internally developed by the research institutes.
