wind-wheel sailing capacity (windage)

Investigation of influence of inclination angles of sail-type blades on the starting torque of horizontal-axis wind-wheel

The expediency of use of slow-speed (multiblade) wind-wheels with sail-type blades on the territories with low wind potential is substantiated. The structure of experimental prototype of horizontal-axis wind0wheel with sail-type blades is proposed. The technique of determination of blades inclination angles influence on the starting torque of the wind-wheel is presented.
