Paper Title:
Wind Tunnel Test on Icing on a Straight Blade for Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
  Abstract

Icing on blade surface of the wind turbine set in cold regions is a serious problem. To invest the mechanism of icing and ice accretion on blade surface, wind tunnel tests were carried out on a static straight blade used for the straight-bladed vertical axis wind turbine by using an icing wind tunnel. The icing and ice accretions on blade surface at some typical angles of attack were observed and recorded in a fixed wind speed and steady flow discharge. The mass of ice accretions on the surface of blade were also measured and compared. At the same time, the drag and lift coefficients were tested by a three-component force balance. Based on the test results, the factors affecting the mass and characteristic of ice accretions and the drag and lift coefficients of the straight blade were discussed.
