Abstract

AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION WAS PERFORMED TO EXAMINE THE FLOW CHARACTERISTICS AND POWER PRODUCTION CAPABILITIES OF THE TORNADO WIND ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEM (TWECS). THE RESULTSINDICATE THAT THE CONFINED VORTEX IN THE TOWER OF TWECS ROTATES APPROXIMATELY AS A SOLID BODY AND ONLY SUPPLEMENTS TOTAL POWER PRODUCTION, MOST OF WHICH COMES FROM THE TOWER ACTING AS A BLUFF BODY.
