QBlade is a wind turbine calculation software. The software is seamlessly integrated into XFOIL, an airfoil design and analysis tool. The motivation for this was to create a one solution software for the design and aerodynamical computation of wind turbine blades.
1. Extrapolation of XFOIL generated or imported polar data to 360° AoA
2. Blade design and optimization, including 3D visualization, using XFOIL generated or imported profiles
3. Turbine definition (rotor blade, turbine control, generator type, losses...)
4. Computation of rotor performance over lambda (tip speed ratio) range
5. Computation of turbine performance over wind speed range
6. Annual yield computation with WEIBULL distribution
7. Manual selection of BEM correction algorithms
8. Manual selection of all simulation parameters
9. Data browsing and visualization as post processing
10. Export functionality for all created simulation data
11. Blade geometry export functionality
12. Storing of projects, rotors, turbines and simulations in a runtime database

Solving the worlds energy problem is one of the great topics of our time. Recently, an increase in global awareness has led to a boom in the market for renewable energy technology. To reduce the dependence on fossil fuels, efficient power generation methods in the fields of solar, wind, wave, biomass and thermal energy are in demand.

This software project is realized being a part of the wind energy group at the Berlin Technical University Department of Experimental Fluid Mechanics, led by Prof. Dr. Christian Oliver Paschereit. The aim of this work is to provide an open source turbine calculation software that is seamlessly integrated into XFOIL, an airfoil design and analysis tool.

The license of this software is Free, you can free download and free use this calculator software.
