Abstract

Some short term performance studies were undertaken on13; sail type windmill rotors of three distinct configurations in field under actual operating conditions. Minimum level of instrumentation was exmployed and results are reported. The aim of these studies was directed towards determination of power coefficients of sail rotors and to study the effectiveness of various control techniques employed on the rotor in field. The information thus gathered gives a first approximation of the rotor performance.
