    • WER-10: Feasibility study of aileron and spoiler control systems for large horizontal axis wind turbines 

      Wentz, W.H.; Snyder, Melvin H.; Calhoun, J.T. (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1979-11)
      Studies have been conducted to determine the feasibility of using aileron or spoi ler controls as alternates to pitch control for large horizontal axis wind turbines. The NASA MDO-O machine was used as the basis for this ...
    • WER-12: Wind Users Manual 

      Snyder, Melvin H. (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1981-01)
      Computer code WIND is a program designed to calculate the performance of a wind-axis wind turbine. This guide is intended to assist users in effectively utilizing the program.
    • WER-15: Wind-II Users Manual 

      Snyder, Melvin H.; Staples, David L. (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1982-07)
      Computer code WIND-II is a program designed to calculate the performance of a wind-axis wind turbine. This guide is intended to assist users in effectively utilizing the program.
    • WER-17: Optimal design techniques for horizontal-axis wind turbines 

      Wentz, W.H.; Stewart, H.J.; Staples, David L. (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1984-02)
      This report is arranged in three parts. Part I is a study by H.J. Stewart of the design exercise based upon his -dual-optimumn techniques. Part II presents two WSU ROTOR design programs (single-optimum, with and without ...
    • WER-25: Aeroelastic analysis of the NASA MOD-0 100 kw wind turbine with aileron controlled blade tip 

      Abla, M.; Brock, B.J.; Liebst, B.S.; Wentz, W.H. (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1984-02)
      An aeroelastic analysis was conducted to determine the design requirements for the aileron control on the NASA MOD 0 100 KW wind turbine to prevent flutter or divergence. The configuration of the ailerons was 2~1 chord ...
    • WER-6: Comparison of performance of Darrieus wind turbines having 12% and 21% thick sections 

      Snyder, Melvin H.; Furukawa, Naoki (Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1979-05)
      A series of wind tunnel tests of a one-meter Darrieus wind turbine has been conducted to determine some effects of blade section on turbine performance. The tests confirm Fukuda's prediction that increasing section c'max ...
