Short summary
The paper studies the effects of uncertainties in aeroservoelastic wind turbine models. Uncertainties are associated with the wind inflow characteristics and the blade surface state, and they are propagated by means of two non-intrusive methods throughout the aeroservoelastic model of a large conceptual offshore wind turbine. Results are compared with a brute-force extensive Monte Carlo sampling to assess the convergence characteristics of the non-intrusive approaches.
