Blade Geometry Optimization for the Design of Wind Turbine Rotors

Abstract

This paper describes a blade geometry optimization method for wind turbine rotors in which considerations are given to aerodynamics, structures, noise, and cost. An existing computer program named PROPGA, which is a genetic-algorithm based optimization method for wind turbines, provided part of the foundation for this work. The objective was to develop and… (More)
