Biomimetic Wind Turbine Design with Lift Enhancing Periodic Stall

Research output: Patent

Abstract

A wind turbine includes a rotor; a blade; and a periodic stall system. The periodic stall system selectively moves at least part of the blade in an oscillating motion whereby an angle of incidence continuously varies to invoke periodic stall. The periodic stall system can move the entire blade or only a portion of the blade, for example a flap.
