New Insight into the Atmospheric Conditions for Wind Turbine Aerodynamics and Aeroelastics

bakThe DANAERO MW experiment was initiated because scientists and wind turbine designers in Denmark realised that more knowledge about the aerodynamics for megawatt wind turbines was required to further optimise the design of these wind turbines. In 2007 the DANAERO MW project was given a grant by the Danish Energy Agency. Risø DTU was made the coordinator, and DONG Energy, LM Wind Power, Siemens Wind Power and Vestas Wind Systems agreed on carrying out a series of experiments. The project was finalised at the end of 2009.
