Webinar: Increase your AEP with Wind Vortex Generators

Free, informative webinar with EDF Renewable Services and 3M – Watch On Demand

 

Due to shape and operation limitations, the blades of large pitch-regulated wind turbines often have suboptimal aerodynamic properties at the root. This frequently leads to undesired airflow separation – known as aerodynamic stall – and can have a significant impact on wind turbine efficiency.

EDF Renewable Services has joined forces with 3M to install 3M™ Wind Vortex Generators (VGs). VGs are tailored to each specific blade type and improve the blade performance by energizing the flow around the surface. This reduces flow separation and increases the performance of the entire turbine in terms of power, loads and service life.

Watch this webinar to learn:

  • How vortex generators can improve AEP 1.5-3 percent
  • Why you need an experienced and professional VG installer
  • How 3M has addressed adhesion issues prevalent in other designs
