Gurney flaps and micro-tabs for load control on wind turbines

Alena Berit Bach
In the last decades, wind turbine innovation has led to significant growth in capacity and size per turbine. Consequently, the blade experiences additional local fluctuations due to local gusts, horizontal or vertical wind shear, blade-tower interference, turbulence, or yaw and tilt misalignment. Reducing these fatigue loads is directly connected to an enhanced overall turbine lifetime as well as a reduction of the levelised cost of energy. A well known fast and effective technique to address...
