WER-6: Comparison of performance of Darrieus wind turbines having 12% and 21% thick sections
M.H. Snyder, Naoki Furukawa. Comparison of performance of Darrieus wind turbines having 12% and 21% thick sections. Wind Energy Report no.6.Wichita State University. Center for Energy Studies, 1979, 32 p.
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 will increase maximum power coefficient.
