Re: NREL 5-MW reference turbine - CP, CQ, CT Coefficients

Dear Jason, Thank you very much for the files, I've managed to update the *.wtp file and to get some results from WT_Perf 3.1, I also run som simulation with FAST to compare the results of power coefficient Cp from both. and here what I've got. Pitch angle: -5.0 deg to 9.0 deg (step 1deg) Rotor spee...

NREL 5-MW reference turbine - CP, CQ, CT Coefficients

Hi, I've a question regarding the thrust CT, torque CQ and power CP coefficients for the NREL 5MW reference wind turbine. Normally these coefficients are function of Tip speed ratio TSR and the pitch angle Beta. I'm wondering if such data are available, as I can't find them in this report http://www...

Re: Compile Adams2AD with ADAMS 2010

Dear Jason, The problem is solved now, I've checked the forum after my last post looking for similar problem, and I found something here https://wind.nrel.gov/forum/wind/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=531#p1957 . I've changed INTEGER :: CU=6 to 7 (line 47 in SysIVF.f90), and rebuild Adams.dll. When I run F...

Re: Compile Adams2AD with ADAMS 2010

Dear Jeason, I'm not sure that I've understood exactly what you mean. In ADAMS/View, in the message window, I've set the settings "Display messages only at or above severity level" to "Information", After that, I've cleared the message window, then started the simulation. I've pr...

Re: Compile Adams2AD with ADAMS 2010

Dear Jason Thank you very much for your answer, Basically, what I'm trying to do is to get myself more familiar with simulating wind turbine with ADAMS, using FAST-to-ADAMS preprocessor. Also making sure that everything is working just fine, without any hidden problems. In the test I'm provided in m...

Re: Compile Adams2AD with ADAMS 2010

Hallo Bonnie, Thanks again for your reply. Apparently, every thing should be ok, HOWEVER, there is still a problem, and simulation with ADAMS is still not working. I'm using the Baseline wind turbine defined in Test_11.fst, the 1.5MW turbine with the following configuration (Just for test purposes):...

Thanks Mehdi for your comments. I still can't make ADAMS work. when I run the simulation from ADAMS/View, I get the following in the message window WARNING: IP data specified for PART BL1M5W_ADAMS.Nacelle_P is not physically meaningful, since it does not satisfy the requirement that Ixx + Iyy must b...

Re: Compile Adams2AD with ADAMS 2010

Dear Bonnie, Now I'm facing another problem, and I can't find out any possible solution, so I think you highly appreciated help is needed. The ADAMS.dll was compiled successfully without any errors or warnings, as I've mentioned in my previous post. I also used FAST-To-ADAMS pre-processor to generat...

Re: Compile Adams2AD with ADAMS 2010

Hi I just would like to add the following comment For issue (2), you can call the Adams mdi.bat file directly. You will probably need to add the full path name, but you can find this on Windows by opening the "Adams -Command" properties. (Start/All Programs/MSC.Software/{Version}, then rig...

Re: Compile Adams2AD with ADAMS 2010

Hi Bonnie, Thanks for your reply. I've managed to solve the problems, and the DLL was created without any error, but I'm NOT sure that it will work or not.. We will see later. :) I would like to mention that compiling ADAMS2AD using ADAMS 2010/64Bits will not work, and it will give some errors like ...
