Considering the complexity of the aerodynamic interaction between a non-homogeneous, nonstationary wind field and a wind turbine, one can easily establish that the constructive elements of the turbine will be exposed to dynamic loads, which will eventually lead to forced motion and particularly to forced vibrations. One of the most significant elements of every wind turbine is the tower of the generator. The tower is subjected to forced vibrations and transmits all dynamic loads that appear in the wind turbine. That is why a dynamic analysis of the tower is worth executing. In this research such an analysis is made considering the tower of the generator as Euler-Bernoulli beam structure and considering it as a Love-Kirchhoff shell structure.
