Abstract

Wind turbine blade measurements were performed. The experiments were conducted using a suction type wind tunnel using HWA measurements. Experimental results showed the interaction between the tower and rotating blades that can create significant turbulence in the wake. Experiments with multiple turbines showed how each turbine contributed to the velocity deficit and total turbulence intensity. For the experimental blade design, the velocity deficit recovered, and turbulence intensity had dissipated within three rotor diameters. As a result of this study, the effects of the wake and turbulence are clarified for turbines cited in-line.
