The quest for the best wind turbine blade design is on.

In terms of a wind turbine's annual energy harvest, a mere 1% more efficient wind turbine blade design offers a massive pay-off in terms of turbine economic viability. A massive pay-off . . . . globally !

At Windrush . . . . we know that a strong case for investment in new wind turbine blade design can be greatly enhanced by mathematical modelling and we would like to hear about your insights and discoveries with a view to finding your ideal investment partner so that you can properly harvest your opportunity.

Wind Turbine Blade Designs

Innovative wind turbine blade designs hold promise for both onshore and offshore applications so the potential for a solid breakthrough is massive both in terms of blade shape and it's structural and flexural properties.

Finite Element Analysis and Turbine Blade Design

Finite Element Analysis coupled with Dimensional Analysis applied to the modelling means that it is possible to take into account the flexural rigidity and deformation of the blade material under winds of various speeds as well as run endless scenarios for different shapes of blade. In this way the blade shape or blade choice could be optimised for maximum yearly energy yield given the Weibull Distributiontion curve for the site. Finally, scale model testing in a wind tunnel can be employed to verify theoretical dimensional/finite element analysis and thus predict the full scale prototype energy yield per turbine.
