Wind power plants: Planning procedure using the example of a system with savonius rotor.

Wind energy gained in importance for electric power supply due to financial incentives for wind turbine generators (WTG) as politically favoured renewable energy source and the resulting technical further development. Building a relevant landscape element, the approvability of the structure plays a decisive role in planning and design of WTG. Another topic is the structural (and the related economical) optimisation of the plants in terms of most effective exploitation of the building material. As most of the WTG are fabricated in small batch series, certification or type testing is advantageous. Using the example of a WTG with savonius rotor, the proceeding of the structural analysis is shown including the most important load assumptions and an outlook on the required verifications.
