Numerical analysis of Magnus wind turbine

Abstract

Magnus rotor is essentially a rotating cylinder that generates lift due to Magnus effect. The effect has been generating curiosity in a wide variety of fields ranging from sports to alternate energy. The wind turbine under investigation replaces tradition blades that have an airfoil cross-section, with such Magnus rotors. In this paper, Magnus wind turbines… (More)
