Description

Wind power is a renewable mode of electricity production that is a rapidly expanding in Australia. The average annual rate of growth in installed capacity reached 35% over the five years to 2011.

As of December 2017, there were 4,455 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity across 83 wind farms in Australia. This accounts for 7% of total electricity demand and 35% of total renewable energy supply. Most turbines are from 1.5 to 3 MW+.

A further 18,823 MW of capacity is proposed or committed, with $5.6 Billion dollars of investment expected to be proposed during 2018.
Wind Power Plants are complex multi-disciplinary engineering projects. The design and construction require interdisciplinary coordination across mechanical, electrical, electronic, civil and structural engineering among many others.

An important design component of a wind turbine is its ability to withstand the dynamic loads induced by the rotation of the blades and loading on to the tall towers.

This presentation looks at the imperatives for wind turbine design, focussing on the civil and structural design and construction aspects of wind turbine power plant.

Speakers: 

Farhad Mollahagahi is Aurecon Technical Director in Renewables.
Ankit Shah is Aurecon Lead Civil Structural Engineer with experience in the design and construction of renewable projects.
