An all-solar manned mission to Mars must overdesign the photovoltaic array in order to handle dust storm conditions. Wind energy extraction is proven terrestrial technology which can offset the dust storm (and night-time) reductions. A multi-phase project is underway to assess the feasibility and drive the development of wind energy extraction systems for Mars. This project has specifically addressed the design of a Darrieus-style Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT). The project assumed that wind… Expand
