Energy characteristics of Darrieus rotor (review)

D.N. Gorelov
Keywords: Darrieus rotor, ideal wind turbine, experimental studies of Darrieus rotor
Pages: 314-321


Presented below is the review of the results of experimental studies of energy characteristics of Darrieus rotor with vertical rotation axis. Influence of main geometry parameters of the rotor on its energy characteristics has been analyzed. It is shown that Darrieus rotor may have the higher level of energy characteristics than the best propeller wind turbines.
