Cost-effectiveness of the vortex-augmented wind turbine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


Cost estimates for the conventional, horizontal-axis, wind turbine and for the vortex-augmented wind turbine are presented. For the latter, the vortex is generated by an appropriate delta wing. It is shown that the vortex-augmented wind turbine competes well with the conventional type. Its economical advantage increases with increasing output power.
