New Insight Into Air Flow Patterns Of Wind Turbine Arrays

Where are the demonstration spots? – There’s one in the Mediterranean and the Chinese are working on VAWTs too, but the missing killer app is energy storage, which would displace the cost of over-capacity. The secondary component of my design is using a wave energy converter to stabilise the wind turbine. Installation, O&M and decommissioning are major cost factors for HAWTs offshore. The special vessels used at present would be redundant. http://www.windpowermonthly.com/article/1165176/2MW-vertical-axis-prototype-construction “Vertical axis turbines have prompted mixed views when compared to a classic horizontal axis turbine. Indeed, Nenuphar CEO Charles Smadja said that based on performance alone, horizontal axis turbines would always be superior to their vertical axis equivalent.” However, Smadja believes that vertical-axis turbines come out on top in terms of cost of e...
