Abstract: The robust design of horizontal axis wind turbines, including both parameter and tolerance designs, is presented. A simple way of designing robust horizontal axis wind turbine systems under realistic conditions is outlined with multiple design variables, multiple objectives, and multiple constraints simultaneously by using the traditional Taguchi method and its extensions. The performance of the turbine is predicted using the axial momentum theory and the blade element momentum theory. In the parameter design stage, the energy output of the turbine is maximized using the Taguchi method and an extended penalty-based Taguchi method is proposed to solve constrained parameter design problems. Using an appropriate set of tolerance settings of the parameters, the tolerance design problem is formulated so as to yield an economical design while ensuring a minimal variability in the performance of the wind turbine. The present work provides a simple and economical approach for the robust optimal design of horizontal axis wind turbines.Copyright © 2015 by ASME

TL;DR: In this article , a wind turbine schematics was designed in Catia software and the height of the blades was 35 and 75 centimeters, the radius of the blade was 18.5 cm and the length of the airfoil 6.4 Cm is.
Abstract: Three airfoils NACA0015, NACA0018 and NACA0021 were selected and in the Q-Blade software, the coefficients of shear, post and the maximum ratio of the exponential coefficients were determined and, finally, the Airfoil Nakata 0015 at a speed of 5 and 10 meters per second, was selected and best. Fluent software was used to solve it, based on the finite volume method. For numerical analysis, the turbulence method K-ω SST was validated with experimental results. The wind turbine schematics was designed in Catia software and the height of the blades was 35 and 75 centimeters, the radius of the blade was 18.5 cm and the length of the airfoil 6.4 Cm is. The results show that in order to operate the turbine of porous blade windings at 35 cm height at speeds of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 7.45, 8.25, 8.5 m / s 50% 50%, 33%, 50%, 50%, 60%, 57%, 55%, 50%, and for setting up a porous blade wind turbine at a height of 75 cm at a speed of one, two, three, four, Five, seven, 7.45, 8.25, 8.5, 9, 9.5 m / s 66.6%, 75%, 80%, 71.4%, 66.6%, 76.9%, 80%, 82%, 89%, 100% of the launching force Smooth wind turbine is required at the same height.
