CONSIDERATIONS ON THE DYNAMIC STRUCTURAL DESIGN FOR A SMALL POWER VERTICAL AXIS WIND TURBINE
The paper presents the main aspects regarding the dynamic structural design for a small power vertical axis wind turbine. The research is applied to a 3-bladed, Darrieus type, small power, vertical axis wind turbine installed on a self-standing pole. First the main sources for the dynamic forces acting on the structure are described. Then a complete investigation on the turbine structural response is done, performing a modal analysis applied to the single rotor, considering several rotational speeds. Next, taking into consideration a building integrated wind turbine, the system composed by the turbine rotor and the mast is investigated. Finally, a thorough discussion of the main implementation problems and design alternatives is presented for a building integrated wind turbine.
