Abstract

This paper demonstrates a wind turbine blade design tool, developed based on the concept of Variable-State Design Parameter. The design code can be utilised to convert ordinary blades of a constant speed horizontal axis wind turbine, with or without pitch control system into passive smart blades. The design objectives are to maximise the rotor power yield and to minimise the maximum blade loading. The design software gives the optimum rotor radius, chord and pre-twist distributions, along with a metric indicating the required level of elastic coupling in the smart blade.
