Wind energy is one of the most important renewable energy sources, effectively addressing climate change issues and promoting sustainable development on a global scale. Blade failures may cause long shut-down times and may present a safety hazard. Continuous and real-time monitoring of the blade conditions is helpful for finding blade damage at...

In this paper, the feasibility of using far-field acoustic measurements as a non-contact monitoring technique for wind turbine blade leading edge erosion is assessed. For this purpose, a DU96 W180 airfoil with several eroded leading edge configurations of different severities is experimentally investigated. The eroded leading edges are designed...

In recent years, with the development of the wind power industry and the increase in the number of wind turbines, the condition monitoring of blades and the detection of damage are increasingly important. In this work, a new non-contact damage-detection approach is experimentally investigated based on the measurement of airfoil aerodynamic noise...

Sound absorbing porous materials are used to line a wind tunnel wall, in order to reduce reflections. However, the lining can have a detrimental effect on the acoustic measurements due to an increase in the noise radiated from the walls. In addition, the aerodynamic fidelity of the tunnel can be affected. In the present study, the influence...

Recent decades have witnessed more and more wind turbines (WTs) being installed onshore and offshore. Health condition monitoring for WTs structures and components is increasingly becoming a compelling concern for stable power output and operational safety of a wind farm [1]. Blade damages seem to occur with a higher probability ahead of other...

Porous materials have been widely investigated as a mean for noise reduction. Numerical simulations can be used to investigate the physical mechanisms responsible for noise reduction; however, a correct modeling of the porous medium through an equivalent fluid model is essential to minimize the computational costs. This paper reports a...

Measurements of flow disturbances in the NLR - HST on the centerline and at the sidewall showed a maximiun noise level of 1 % in Cprms at a Mach number of 0.8. This is low compared with other ventilated wall tunnels of about the same size. Space-time correlations showed that a large part of the flow disturbances concisted of upstream travelling...
