Wind Turbine Design Software

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Bladed is the industry standard integrated software package for the design and certification of onshore and offshore turbines.

Bladed provides worldwide wind turbine and component manufacturers, certification agencies, design consultants and research organisations with a design tool that has been extensively validated against measured data from a wide range of turbines. It enables users to conduct  the full range of performance and loading calculations. With a Windows-based user interface, it supports calculations of combined wind and wave loading, with full aeroelastic and hydroelastic modelling. It has been validated for the calculation of wind turbine loads for design and certification.

Multibody structural dynamics

Bladed  utilises a new, completely self-consistent and rigorous formulation of the structural dynamics. This provides consistently reliable and accurate results and forms a solid foundation from which to continue to extend the structural model with features as part of the ongoing development programme.

Bladed Modules

In addition to the core base module, Bladed has several specialist bolt-on modules covering steady state analysis, dynamic load simulations, analysis of loads and energy capture, batch processing and automated report generation, interaction with the electrical network, and model linearisation for control design.
