Parameterising the impact of roughness evolution on wind turbine performance

Abstract:

This paper presents a study investigating the effects of surface roughness on airfoil performance and its consequences for wind turbine energy yield. This study examined 51 sets of experimental data across 16 airfoils to identify trends in roughened airfoil performance. The trends are used to formulate a novel ‘roughness evolution parameter’ that can be applied to airfoils with no roughened data available to predict the impact of roughness on performance. Blade element momentum theory is used...
