Developed together with Smart Blade GmbH, UpWind’s Blade Vortex Generator (VG) solution maximizes the energy yield potential with maintained aerodynamic balance.
Reduce Flow Separation
Vortex Generators, designed for each specific blade geometry, improves the performance of the blades by energizing the flow around the blade and reducing flow separation. The performance of the entire turbine in terms of power, loads and service life can therefore be improved by means of precise installation.
- Increase AEP 2-3%
- Reduces flow separation
- Reduces loads during volatile wind speeds
- Corrects for leading edge degradation
Industry-Leading VG Solution
A slight V-shape installation traces flow separation line for optimized performance.
Repeatable installation process
Optimal and accurate placement ensures aerodynamic balance.
Custom-designed VGs maximize energy yield for every technology.
Easy to install
Self-adhesive tape reduces room for error and assures firm bonding in a wide climatic range.
