Airfoil Geometry

Hello Everyone,

Is it possible to get the airfoil geometry of the NREL5MW turbine airfoils? I have been searching in the internet, but I did not found any source. It would nice if someone provide me source to find them.

Regards,
Chaitanya

Steady airfoil coefficients extrapolation

Hello Everyone, I'm working on three dimensional rotational effects on the wind turbine blades. I have also some three dimensional corrections models with me. The most important thing to be considered for the effective implementation of 3D correction methods is the input steady airfoil coefficients....

UpWind Reference Wind Turbine Excel book

Dear Mr. Jason Jonkman,

I have a small and quick question on the NREL 5MW wind turbine. I'm trying not to be rude, but short and simple. Does the Excel workbook on "Upwind Reference Wind Turbine", is accessible to everyone?

Best Regards,
Chaitanya Majjari

Re: Reynolds number of the airfoil data

Hello Mr.Jason Jonkman, First of all I wish you Happy New Year!!! Thank you very much for your time and effort to reply. The information, you have provided is very helpful to me. I'm implementing the three dimensional correction method dynamically in a load simulation tool, for that I need the stead...

Reynolds number of the airfoil data

Hello, I have a question regarding the reynolds numbers used, in the generation of steady airfoil coefficients,for the reference turbine NREL 5MW. In the chapter 2 of the document "Definition of a 5-MW Reference Wind Turbine for Offshore System Development", it is mentioned that the blade ...

Re: Airfoil Prep - 3D corrections

Respected MR. Jason Jonkman, Thank you for your reply. I have made the statement "single angle of attack", as I though that the Rotor rpm and the wind speed are used to find the particular angle of attack. At present, I'm working on the implementaion and positioning of the 3D corrections i...

Airfoil Prep - 3D corrections

Hello Everyone, I'm working on the Adaptive trailing edge flap dynamic stall model(A beddoes Leishman type dynamic stall model). I have to implement this model in OneModelica library simulation tool. In order to validate the model, I have generated the steady airfoil coefficients for DU21 airfoil, a...

Re: Airfoilprep Lift Spikes

Dear Jason, Thank you for your quick response. I have managed to get the appropriate airfoil coefficients from XFLR5 and then used Airfoilprep to get corrected and interpolated data. I have referred to NREL 5MW wind turbine document and DOWEC 6MW document to find the appropriate reynolds number and ...

Re: Airfoil coefficients data with active flap angles

Hello Everyone, I'm patiently waiting for some helpful suggestions of my question. Meanwhile, I would like to present some more information I have gathered. I have generated the airfoil coefficients Cl. Cm and Cd using XFLR5 for flap angles in the range -10 to 10 degrees for the airfoil DU40_17. To ...

Re: Airfoilprep Lift Spikes

Dear Jason and Kisorthman, Thanks for your informative comments from both of you. I have the following questions: 1. In the AirfoilPrep_v2p0_DU40_A17.xls provided ba Jason, the sheet Interpolate contains the data from angle of attack 0 - 90 degrees. Have you generated these data using Xfoil or Is it...

Re: Movable trailing edge flaps implementation

Hello Xiao, I have used the XFLR5 to generate the airfoil coefficients with flap. I have used the coordinates of the airfoil provided in the FAST 5MW wind turbine. For example I have loaded the DU21_A17 airfoil coordinates with Reynolds number = 0.75E6. I have not found anything else to change. I ha...

Re: Movable trailing edge flaps implementation

Hello Jason and Srinivasa, I went through the whole discussion and it is quite informative. I'm working on ATEFlap(Adaptive trailing edge flap) aerodynamic model. In order to verify my model I need airfoil data with different flap angles. As per your discussion you have mentioned that it is possible...

Re: Questions regarding Equilibrium and Dynamic Inflow model

Hello Jason,

Thanks for the reply. My question regarding BEM actually refer to one the topic in forum:https://wind.nrel.gov/forum/wind/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=538&p=1942&hilit=gdw+tsr#p1942

Even my question regarding GDW (DynIn) is from the same topic.

Thanks
Chaitanya
