Wind Turbine Technology

The programme for wind turbine technology focuses on the further development and maturing of the technology by providing methods, models and tools to extent the rotor design complex, and cover new concepts, components and their design fundamentals, as well as materials and processing. 

Increasingly demanding design objectives are taken into account, for example design for O&M and a predetermined unified lifetime for all components. Procedures for repair for lifetime extension and design upgrade will be developed, and the research results and turbine and component characteristics are validated with tests.
