Short summary
Current fast aeroelastic wind turbine codes suitable for certification lack an induction model for standstill conditions. A near-wake model for wind turbines in operation is extended to cover these conditions. The model is validated in aerodynamic simulations of the NREL/NASA Ames Phase VI rotor. Good agreement with the experiments has been obtained in attached flow and beginning separation. Aeroelastic simulations of the DTU 10 MW turbine in standstill indicate a minor impact of the model.
