The purpose of this post is to illustrate an example method for assessing changes in performance for wind turbines based on the installation of performance modifications. In this case we’re looking at Vortex Generators (VG) which are typically after market hardware installed along wind turbine blades and are purported to improve blade performance by reducing flow separation, thereby improving lift, and increasing power efficiency.
