Qblade hawt Tutorial

The impacts of the distribution of the airfoils of the blade on the performance of modern horizontal-axis wind turbines This study targets the impact of the distribution of airfoils on the structural mechanics and aerodynamic performance of a rotor of a benchmark wind turbine at using the QBlade software, using global modeling with the BEM…

Wind energy stumbles in Germany

The end of the energy transition  Wind energy plays a crucial role in saving the climate, so starting next year, thousands of wind turbines will be turned into scrap. The number of turbines that will stop working and be recycled will be much greater than those that will be manufactured. Sovereigns submit to the opponents…

8 Basic concepts of wind turbines

  The need for wind energy in the energy system is to replace fossil fuel-based electricity generation to combat climate change on a global scale, but also to mitigate environmental concerns which are more on a regional or a local scale, which is associated with. Fossil fuel-fired power plants emission of particles, nitrogen oxides, or…

Why wind turbines are white?

Wind Turbines are white, yes but why? Is it simply an aesthetic criterion or are there other reasons for this color? According to a study by the British University, the color of the mat (white or gray color) attracts insects such as flies, aphids, mites, butterflies, or beetles. Birds or bats, attracted by these insects,…

Classification of Wind Turbines

Variable and Constant Speed Wind TurbinesAlthough known and exploited for a long time, wind energy was completely neglected during the industrial era, for the almost exclusive benefit, except hydroelectricity, of fossil fuels. The kinetic energy of the wind can be directly converted into mechanical energy and be usable for example in old windmills or to…
