Abstract
Wind turbines contribute significantly to the production of renewable energy. In order to minimize the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) the cost of the wind turbine incl. tower and the foundation should be as low as possible but at the same time have a sufficient reliability. In this paper, focus is on wind turbine components which may be made of concrete such as tower and foundation. In traditional deterministic design based on design standards, partial safety factors are applied to obtain the design values. Improved design with a consistent reliability level for all components can be obtained by use of probabilistic design methods with explicit consideration of...
