High-Efficiency 4kW VAWT Design and Development

Abstract:

Article Preview

Emerging markets need small sized VAWT (vertical-axis wind turbine) for residential energy supplement. MingDao university wind power R&D team has developed a 4kW VAWT system is response to this need. The development items include innovative blades, generator, power control and mast design. The newly developped 4kW VAWT system demonstrates superior performance. The average VAWT efficiency is 0.31 and the average Cp is 0.39. The preliminary results showed this approach has potential for future applications.
