Maximum efficiency of wind turbine rotors using Joukowsky and Betz approaches

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

On the basis of the concepts outlined by Joukowsky nearly a century ago, an analytical aerodynamic optimization model is developed for rotors with a finite number of blades and constant circulation distribution. In the paper, we show the basics of the new model and compare its efficiency with results for rotors designed using the optimization model of Betz.
