Abstract

Vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) in double-rotor configuration, meaning two rotors in close proximity, have the ability to enhance the power performance. In this study, we work towards the understanding of vertical-axis wind turbines in double-rotor configuration. Numerical simulations are performed to gain insight in the physics behind the double-rotor concept. Furthermore, a parametric study is performed to explore the effect of the double-rotor lay-out, rotor loading, rotor spacing and wind direction on the flow characteristics and the power generation.
