A vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) was positioned at the discharge outlet of a cooling tower electricity generator. To avoid a negative impact on the performance of the cooling tower and to optimize the turbine performance, the determination of the VAWT position in the discharge wind stream was conducted by experiment. The preferable VAWT position is where(More)
This paper describes the development of a model of an exhaust air wind energy recovery system with adjustable guide-vane. The model is developed by using a curve fitting approach with polynomial regression analysis; it correlates the fan speed, guide-vane angle, wind turbine rotational speed and duty cycle of the resistive load to electrical power. It can(More)
