Analysis of a tip correction factor for horizontal axis turbines

Abstract:

It is imperative to include three-dimensional tip flow corrections when using low-order rotor models that rely on the flow independence principle to compute the blade forces. These corrections aim to account for the effect of pressure equalization at the tips and the accompanying spanwise pressure gradients on the outboard sections, by reducing the computed axial and tangential forces as the blade tips are approached. While Glauert-type corrections are conventionally employed for actuator dis...
