WindPACT Turbine Rotor Design Study: June 2000--June 2002 (Revised)

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


This report presents the results of the turbine rotor study completed by Global Energy Concepts (GEC) as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's WindPACT (Wind Partnership for Advanced Component Technologies) project. The purpose of the WindPACT project is to identify technology improvements that will enable the cost of energy from wind turbines to fall to a target of 3.0 cents/kilowatt-hour inlow wind speed sites. The study focused on different rotor configurations and the effect of scale on those rotors.
