Online FAST Course from UMass in Spring 2019

Postby Matthew.Lackner » Thu Dec 20, 2018 10:28 am

Dear NWTC forum members,

My colleagues and I are offering an online course in the Spring 2019 semester on wind turbine simulation using FAST (specifically we will use OpenFAST). Students will learn how to download and run FAST, how to generate and modify input files, how to run various simulation conditions, and how to analyze output data. At the end of the course students should be highly competent users of FAST, ready to perform loads and energy generation analysis and try out new design modifications of their own.

The course is made up of 9 online modules:

Unit 1: Introduction to OpenFAST
Unit 2: Anatomy of a wind turbine
Unit 3: Pre- and post-processing
Unit 4: ElastoDyn and SubDyn
Unit 5: Aerodyn, InfloWind, and TurbSim
Unit 6: HydroDyn
Unit 7: Floating structures
Unit 8: ServoDyn
Unit 9: Advanced techniques

Mini Workshops on OpenFAST and SOWFA / Nalu-Wind to be held on October 17

Postby Jason.Jonkman » Wed Sep 25, 2019 12:47 pm

Dear Wind Turbine Modeling Enthusiast,

In partnership with the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is hosting two mini-workshops on Thursday, October 17, 2019, in conjunction with the NAWEA / WindTech 2019 Conference in Amherst, Massachusetts (USA). One workshop will be on OpenFAST and another on SOWFA and Nalu-Wind. Please find more information--and links to register--in the attached announcement.

Online FAST Course from UMass in Spring 2020

Postby Matthew.Lackner » Tue Oct 01, 2019 11:30 am

Dear NWTC forum members,

My colleagues and I are offering an online course in the Spring 2020 semester on wind turbine simulation using FAST (specifically we will use OpenFAST). Students will learn how to download and run FAST, how to generate and modify input files, how to run various simulation conditions, and how to analyze output data. At the end of the course students should be highly competent users of FAST, ready to perform loads and energy generation analysis and try out new design modifications of their own.

Unit 5: Aerodyn, InfloWind, and TurbSim
Unit 6: HydroDyn
Unit 7: Floating structures
Unit 8: ServoDyn
Unit 9: Advanced techniques

The course is open to non-citizens of the U.S. There are no explicit prerequisites, but the course has been developed by engineers and the assumption is that many students of the course have an engineering or technical background. Modules are released weekly, and you can work on your own schedule, so no need to schedule any specific times for the class.
