    Abstract

    Offshore wind energy is one of the most promising technologies in the field of renewable energy, especially in cold climate regions.
    This paper introduces a new way to get a better understanding of ice induced vibrations at offshore wind turbines.
    Therefore a well established empirical ice model was implemented in the aero-hydro-servo-elastic simulation tool OnWind utilizing the modeling language Modelica.
    To retain a realistic dynamic behavior, an overall wind turbine model including relevant environmental conditions like soil and wind is used.
    For the investigations representative ice conditions from the Gulf of Bothnia were chosen.
