The aerodynamic and aeroacoustic behaviors of wavy trailing edge modified flatback wind turbine blade have been investigated through numerical simulation. Previous studies have demonstrated aerodynamic and aeroacoustic benefits of the span-wise wavy trailing edge modification on the flatback...
Wind turbine wake has the wind speed deficit and the increased turbulent flow to the downstream turbines as signatures. Various experiments and simulations have been performed over the years to investigate the wake parameters; however, a statistical characterization of wake states is still to be...
Advances in wind energy technology and continued expansion of wind energy into the United States and global electricity grids will depend upon an educated and skilled workforce. While wind energy technician programs at community colleges or vocational schools have prospered in the United States...
A prescribed-wake vortex model for evaluating the aerodynamic loads on offshore floating turbines has been developed. As an extension to the existing UMass analysis tool, WInDS, the developed model uses prescribed empirical wake node velocity functions to model aerodynamic loading. This model is...
Atmospheric and wake turbulence have a great and immediate impact on the fatigue life of wind turbine blades. Generally speaking, wake-induced fatigue accounts for 5%–15% increase of fatigue load on the wind turbine rotor, which definitely threats the safety and economy of the whole wind farm....
Wind farms are better been built at locations with higher wind resource potentials. As the appropriate locations become fewer and fewer to build onshore wind farms, significant attention has been drawn to the wind energy industry to build offshore wind farms. The terrain effect has fewer effects...
