Short summary
Multi-rotor wind turbine systems show the potential to reduce the levelized cost of energy. In this study a simplified and fast method as a first venture to find an optimal number of rotors and design parameters is presented. A variety of space frame designs are dimensioned based on ultimate loads and buckling, as a preliminary step for later detailed analyses.
