Workshop Series: Grow your offshore wind structure design and optimization solution knowledge

Offshore wind turbine foundation and analysis with Sesam software for offshore wind

Expand your expertise in design of offshore wind structures using Sesam and Bladed

Join us for our first workshop series of 2021 where our focus will be to share tips and tricks using Sesam and Bladed for both onshore and offshore wind design of turbines and (fixed and floating) support structures. 

Benefits of attending

  • Onshore wind turbine design 
  • Fixed and floating offshore wind turbine and support structure design 
  • Wind turbine concept model library 

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how Sesam can be used in the design of fixed and floating offshore wind substructures 
  • Learn how Bladed’s wind turbine analysis capabilities can be applied together with Sesam for improved support structure design 
  • Learn about the benefits of using wind turbine concept models in early phase design and R&D 

Don't miss the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience first-hand the innovation, flexibility, and efficiency of Sesam and Bladed for your offshore wind projects.  Each workshop will be hosted via Microsoft TEAMS. Meeting links and course material will be distributed to each participant before the workshop via Eventbrite, so be sure any confirmation e-mails received aren't directed to your spam folder. Registration tips are captured on the registration page, so be sure to review for the best experience. You will also receive professional engineering credit certificates upon completion of each course.  

Speakers:  

Laurens Alblas, Product Manager, Offshore Wind -  Laurens has been working in DNV at Høvik, Norway, since 2012 and has a background in aerospace engineering and wind energy. As Product Manager for the Sesam software for strength assessment for offshore wind structures, he is setting the strategic direction of the software and is responsible for prioritization of developments for Sesam for fixed and floating offshore wind. Through close communication with customers and other key industry players, he is further improving and optimizing the way strength assessment software is being used in the offshore wind industry. 

John King, Business Lead, Loads, Aero, and Control 

Edoardo Cicirello, Engineer, Load Analysis Turbine Engineering 

Chris Kubes, Principal Support Engineer will be on hand to support Abin Thomas. Chris has been working as a software support engineer for floating structure design with DNV for the past 6 years. He graduated with an aerospace degree in 2002 and has worked in the both aerospace and offshore fields as an engineer for the past 17 years.

Agenda

Agenda Overview. All Session times are CDT

Day 1 

Tuesday, April 13

 

Introduction

  • Bladed demo, model build, load cases, and batch runs 
  • Concept models service (for life extension/operations) 
  • SST overview 

Day 2 

Wednesday, April 14

 

Offshore Wind: Sesam + Bladed Capabilities

During day 2 of the workshop series, Sesam’s capabilities for fixed offshore wind will be introduced. After a quick overview of Sesam’s modeling capabilities, an industry practice workflow for fixed offshore wind support structures will be shown, using the strengths in Sesam and Bladed and featuring DNV’s cloud solutions for computation and collaboration. The benefits of using wind turbine concept models are explained for optimized design of the support structures.

  • Sesam substructure design tools including short modeling demonstration 
  • Fixed OWT workflows (superelement and integrated) with Sesam and Bladed, including demonstration 
  • Concept model (new designs) 
  • Cloud and Insight  

Day 3 

Wednesday, April 15

 

Workflows for floating offshore wind

Our last workshop will focus on the DNV workflows for floating offshore wind, enabling design of the wind turbine as well as for the floater and mooring lines. A demonstration will run through the workflow, including fully-coupled analysis of the complete floating wind structure, performing a hydrodynamic re-tracking along with a structural assessment of the floater in Sesam

  • Sesam floater design and hydrodynamic coefficients 
  • Sima Floating OWT demo 
  • Concept models and Bladed for floating wind 
  • Sesam hydrodynamic re-tracking and structural assessment 
  • Future of Sesam and Bladed
