This paper presents a performance analysis of a horizontal axis wind turbine with an atypical design. The performance analysis was performed by a measurement in a low-speed wind tunnel. The atypical design of the horizontal axis wind turbine mimics the design of a radial turbine. The wind turbine was, however, simplified by “removing” the conventional stationary parts of the radial turbine, such as portion of the case or guide vanes. The paper describes the measurement test bed and compares the performance of this atypical wind turbine with more conventional designs.
