The aerodynamics of the blades allows the wind turbine to begin to produce energy with very low wind speeds. Windspot begins to work from 2.5 m/s
The exclusive aerodynamics of the blades developed by the Sonkyo Energy research department results in a smooth and silent turn.
Aerodynamics: The production of the small wind turbine depends on the relation between the wind and the windmill rotor. That´s why the aerodynamic studies are important for the correct function of the machine:
-Scale blades profiles studies in wind tunnels.
- Working methodology development to predict prototypes performance in real scale.
-Theorical study of the aerodynamics based in lift principles using 3D simulations of the airflow.
-Noise reduction developing new profiles.
-Location study to improve small wind turbines performances: Towers height, closest obstacle, airflow characteristics (laminar or turbulent), or ground roughness.
