Wind Turbine Dynamics

Investigation into the foundations of wind turbine energy conversion

This is a versatile, compact apparatus for teaching the fundamentals of kinetic wind energy conversion into electrical power. Flexibility is at the core, it has a castor-mounted frame for mobility and functionality and allows students to 3D-print their own blades for advanced experimentation.

Comprehensive demonstration and investigation into the foundations of wind turbine energy conversion including:
• The relationship between turbine speed and wind velocity (TSR)
• Effect of blade pitch on turbine performance
• Effect of yaw angle on turbine performance
• Blade performance characteristics of different profiled blades
• Blade design theory
