Presenter bio:
Ricard Buils has been working in the wind industry for more than 10 years. After gaining experience in wind energy resource analysis at Energy Resources in Barcelona, he joined DNV GL in 2007. He is currently the Head of the Wind Turbine Loads Analysis and Wave & Tidal Sections at DNV GL – Energy, within the Turbine Engineering Support department in Bristol, UK. The Loads Analysis Section offers a vast range of services related to loads analysis and advanced numerical modelling of wind turbines, both for onshore/offshore/floating wind and tidal domains. The team is very much linked to the development of the software Bladed, the industry leading independent aero-servo-hydro-elastic tool.

During the last 4 years Ricard has been very active in promoting floating wind, whilst raising awareness of the challenges both from a technical and commercial point of view. This presentation will provide an introductory overview of the industry to then go onto the particular technical challenges related to the numerical dynamic coupled analysis of floating wind turbines. The presentation will go through the different engineering disciplines that combine together to affect the overall dynamics of the system:

  • Rotor aerodynamics
  • Platform hydrodynamics
  • Structural dynamics
  • Mooring dynamics
