    Abstract

    A simple analytical rotor model based on vortex
    theory is briefly presented and used to investigate the
    main mechanisms for wind turbine rotors operating
    at yaw misalignment. The overall findings of the
    model is verified by comparing with an existing
    model as well as with results obtained using the
    actuator disc technique combined with full Navier-
    Stokes computations.
