Abstract or Summary
  • Development of a performance analysis for propeller type wind turbines is presented. The analysis uses a strip theory approach that includes tip-loss and blade interference. A comparison is presented between analysis and test data. The comparison indicates that the analysis predicts wind turbine performance to an accuracy that is within experimental uncertainty. Design procedures for optimum wind turbines are shown to be different than those used for propellers. An optimum design generation approach for wind turbines is developed from a modified strip theory that includes tip-loss. The approach entails a local optimization of blade element parameters to maximize power output. Examples are presented that illustrate the optimum design generation procedure and off- design performance characteristics. The design analysis and optimum design generation approaches have been programmed on a digital computer using the Fortran IV language. Program listings, operating instructions, and sample outputs are included.
