The wind turbine blades are the main part of the rotor. Extraction of energy from wind depends on the design of the blade. In this paper, a design method based on Blade Element Momentum (BEM) theory is explained for small horizontal–axis wind turbine model (HAWT) blades. The method was used to optimize the chord and twist distributions of the wind turbine blades to Cited by: 4. Based on BLADED software, the aerodynamic performance of a large scale wind turbine blade was analyzed under variable condition. The results show that the rated power of the blade under variable condition is increased 10%, when the rated wind speed is changed from m/s to m/s. The blade’s wind power coefficient is above , and its tip speed ratio is between Author: Peng Zhan Zhou, Fang Sheng Tan.   Wallace FJ, Baines NC, Whitfield A () A unified approach to the one dimensional analysis and design of radial and mixed flow turbines, ASME Paper GT Google Scholar 4.

solid wood as a construction material. The aerodynamic analysis is performed implementing a momentum based model on a mathematical computer pro-gram.

A three bladed wind turbine is proposed as candidate for further prototype test-ing after evaluating the effect of several parameters in turbine efficiency, torque and acceleration. To design a high-efficiency wind turbine rotor, the accurate numerical prediction for the rotor aerodynamic performances can serve as a quicker and lower-cost alternative as compared to wind tunnel experiments.

Past studies applied CFD for wind turbine analysis have provided essential information in the design process of turbine rotor. The rotor blade is an important device that converts kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy. It affects power performance, efficiency of energy conversion, load and dynamic stability of a wind power generation system.

This paper presents an aerodynamic design of 3 MW class blade using BEM and confirms that the design satisfies the initial design target Cited by:   Firstly, cooling air increases aerodynamic drag of the blades. Secondly, the cooling air has a lower stagnation pressure when mixed into the downstream flow therefore the cooling air suffers a pressure loss in the cooling passages.

Thirdly, entropy is increased by heat transfer from the hot primary gas flow to the cooling flow.
