1 Global loads When discussing blade loads, most of the time the so-called global loads are of primary interest. The global loads are the loads that are transferred from the blade into the hub/main shaft assembly, being the next main component along the load path from the rotor to the foundation of a wind turbine. 2 Each of these elements’ cross sections along the blade span is an aerodynamic aerofoil creating aerodynamic lift and drag forces that act in the aerodynamic centre of the aerofoil. The lift and drag forces are oriented perpendicular to and along the direction of the inflow, respectively.

This coincidence of the blade edgewise natural frequency with one of the rotor whirl modes in this case triggered the edgewise stall-induced vibrations. This shows that even the repercussions of changes in the supporting structure can cause significant and detrimental blade loads. In contrast to the example of edgewise stall-induced vibrations, in the case of flapwise oscillations of the rotor blades, deflection and the associated aerodynamic forces are typically in opposite directions. Hence a flapwise oscillation is usually well damped, making it sometimes very difficult to find the blade’s flapwise natural frequency in measured (blade root bending) data taken during blade operation.
