This work presents simulations of the DTU 10MW wind turbine rotor equipped
with vortex generators (VGs) on the inner part of the blades. The objective is to study the influence of different VG configurations on rotor performance and in particular to investigate the radial dependence of VGs, i.e. how VGs at one section of the blade may affect the aerodynamic characteristics at other radial positions. Furthermore, the performance of different sections on the blade is compared to their corresponding performance in 2D flow.
