DTU 10-MW steady state performance, Timoshenko blades and rotational inertia

In this document we compare results produced by Ashes with the DTU 10-MW wind turbine for constant uniform wind speeds ranging from 4 to 25 m.s-1. This test is a copy of the test DTU 10-MW steady state performance, with the following modifications:
  • the Default element type in the Analysis tab is set to Timoshenko
  • the Include rotational mass/inertia switch in the Blade modelling section of the Aerodynamics tab is toggled on

We expect the results to be close enough to the original test to be able to use the same benchmark. The report with the results can be downloaded here:
