Innovative, Trailing Edge Winglet: Bent. Broken. Better!
Division:International / None
Abstract:An innovative, trailing edge winglet is studied to make the blade more efficient. It is movable and made out of the blade itself. Two designs were tested in 12 different wind speeds. The blades with the winglets generated over 100% more electricity than the blade without the winglet. The airflow around the winglet blades appeared to be the same as the standard blade.
