When operating at the same power level, one key disadvantage of the two-bladed wind turbines is that the bending moments of the blade hub and tower base are higher on each individual rotor blade, this may cause fatigue loads on the turbines (Josef, 2005).
Results are presented below in the order of rotor performance and blade hub moment, the tower base bending moment, and the wake impact, to gain understanding of aerodynamic loadings and interactions in the wind turbine systems.
Each of the structures will be 80 meters tall (262 feet) to the center of the blade hub.
The fan has a brushed-chrome finish, a deep pitch, a quiet blade attached to a bullet-nose blade hub, three-speed control, and complete tilt adjustment.
Parker also developed dynamic pitch systems incorporating specially designed cylinders and fully protected internal transducers on which integrated blocks containing all necessary valves are mounted and placed inside the blade hubs. The pitch control can be combined with an advanced axis controller for pitch and maximum force control, bringing about high-accuracy blade control and permanent control of the mechanical load on the blades.
