The present paper describes a frequency domain model of the structure of an operating horizontal axis wind turbine with three or more blades. The frequency domain model is implemented along with an analogous time domain model in a PC code. This PC code is used to verify the frequency domain model comparing loads on the structure calculated with the frequency domain model both to loads calculated with the time domain model and to measured loads.
