Wind turbine smart blades change their aerodynamic
characteristics in response to changes in operating condition,
aiming at enhancing the power capture capability or controlling
the power and aerodynamic load. Smart blades span a wide
range of technologies. Some of these technologies have been
proposed and developed specially for wind turbines, while some
others have been borrowed from aircraft applications. Adaptive
blades, telescopic blades, morphing blades, blades equipped
with active control surfaces are some examples of smart blades.
This paper presents a summary of wind turbine smart blades
and advances in simulation and design of these blades.
