Rotor Blades – Lightweight Design And Optimized Manufacturing
The main topics of the conference include:
• Economic challenges of rotor blade development
• Structural design and aerodynamic performance (two OEM presentations)
• Testing of blades, such as virtual testing and in-field validation methods
• Improved and new materials for blades, such as natural fibre, glass fibre or carbon fibre
Additionally, participants are offered two interactive workshops on February 15, 2012. Discuss the structural blade design and CFD applications for blade design with experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems and the University of Stuttgart.
The conference will give participants the chance to identify the key challenges in blade manufacturing technologies and learn about advanced design concepts for increased energy yield. Experts from OEMs such as Siemens Wind Power, GE Wind Energy, Vestas Wind Systems and SGL Rotec GmbH will offer valuable first-hand information.
