The recent development of an unsteady, three-dimensional aerodynamic model has provided the opportunity to determine the influence of detailed blade geometry on the performance of straight-bladed vertical axis wind turbines. In particular, the present paper examines the effect of blade pitch, twist, taper and aerofoil section by comparison with a simplistic baseline configuration. The study concentrates on the low tip-speed ratio regime where the blade aerodynamics are inherently unsteady and… CONTINUE READING
