Offshore wind turbine technology group


Our focus is on support structures for offshore wind energy. We are particularly interested in efficient analysis and computer-aided optimization of bottom-fixed structures, using numerical turbine simulations, statistical meta-modeling, and stochastic approaches. We offer consulting services for industry and employees of NTNU can use our wind turbine analysis software (e.g. DNV-GLGH Bladed). The group was started by Prof. Geir Moe (*2011) who was instrumental in establishing wind energy as a research field in Norway and at NTNU. The current head of the group is Prof. Michael Muskulus (since 2012). The current members of the group are: Prof. Michael Muskulus, Mayilvahanan Alagan Chella, Sebastian Schafhirt, Tu Ying, Lars Einar Stieng, Wojciech Popko (PhD student at Leibniz University Hannover).
