The objective of this master thesis is to work with an existing new perturbation system that was especially built to induce strong, rapid, turbulent gusts. A first characterization has already been performed by Neunaber & Braud (2020). The succesfull candidate will further customize and characterize this system to create realistic inflow conditions. The work will be performed within the framework of the national project ANR MOMENTA (WP2, blade scale).
Description du poste
We are looking for a candidate who is interested in continuing on the topic after the Master thesis during a PhD thesis funded by the ANR MOMENTA project. Whithin this PhD thesis, the impact of the previously customized inflows on different blade sections will be investigated, from low Reynolds numbers (wind tunnel) to full scale Reynolds numbers (simulations). The different blade sections will be chosen from the existing blade scanning of a 2MW wind turbine in operation. Different inflows characteristics (turbulent Inflow, turbulent length scales …) will be provided by the WP1 of the ANR project using field measurements (meteorologic mast, drone and scanning LIDAR).
