We here present new results on the classical work of the optimum rotor. The emphasis is put vortex theory for which we have developed a new analytical method to determine the loading on an optimum win turbine rotor. The introduction of the work is a repetition of results using momentum theory. This is included in order to validate and compare the new model at simplified situations, such as a rotor operating without swirl and/or a rotor with infinite many blades.
