Short summary
This paper experimentally validates a novel method for characterizing wind turbine dynamics based on vibration measurements. The dynamics of wind turbines can change over short time periods if the operational conditions change. In such cases, conventional methods are inadequate. The validation is performed with a controlled laboratory experiment and a full-scale wind turbine test. More accurate characterization could lead to more efficient wind turbine designs and in turn cheaper wind energy.
