Experimental determination of the energy efficiency of rotors of vertical-axis wind turbines for autonomous power supply on land and at sea
Laboratory of Non-conventional Energy of the Department of Energy Problems of the Saratov Scientific Center of the RAS at Astrakhan State Technical University, 16, Tatischeva Str., 414025, Russia
For the first time, experimental studies have been performed to assess the effect of flaps with triangular elements on the operation of the N-Darrieus and Savonius rotors. It has been established that the rotational speed of the original N-Darrieus and Savonius rotors having blades with flaps is greater than the rotation frequency of the N-Darrieus and Savonius rotors of the known construction by 18%, and the power factors of the N-Darrieus and Savonius rotors are for 17% and 19% more. Optimization of the geometrical parameters of the blades can lead to an increase in the power factor of the N-Darrieus rotor up to a value of 0.72, which is higher than the maximum possible value of 0.45 for the horizontal axis wind turbine. It is advisable to aggregate N-Darrieus rotors with Savonius rotors having a large starting torque. The upgraded N-Darrieus and Savonius rotors, as well as the combined rotors based on them, can be used in power supply systems for various objects on land and at sea.
