Short summary
The certification process of a wind turbine requires simulations of a coupled structural and aerodynamic wind turbine model in many different external conditions. Due to the large number of load cases, the complexity of the aerodynamics models has to be limited. In this paper, a simplified vortex method based aerodynamics model is described. It is shown that this model, which is fast enough for use in a certification context, can produce results similar to those of a more complex vortex model.
