Ultimate Blade Design - Wind Turbine
Division:Health Sciences
Region:Simcoe County
City:Thornton, ON
Abstract:This project studied the effectiveness of two blade design variables (length and overlap) on a Savonius wind turbine. The efficiency of the blade designs was quantified by measuring the generated electrical current using a voltmeter. Longer blades and a 30% overlap were found to be more efficient.
