Virtual Sensor for Kinematic Estimation of Flexible Links in Parallel Robots
The control of flexible link parallel manipulators is still an open area of research, endpoint trajectory tracking being one of the main challenges in this type of robot. The flexibility and deformations of the limbs make ...
Five MegawattWind Turbine Power Output Improvements by Passive Flow Control Devices
The effects of two types of flow control devices, vortex generators (VGs) and Gurney flaps (GFs), on the power output performance of a multi-megawatt horizontal axis wind turbine is presented. To that end, an improved blade ...
Microtab design and implementation on a 5MW wind turbine
Microtabs (MT) consist of a small tab placed on the airfoil surface close to the trailing edge and perpendicular to the surface. A study to find the optimal position to improve airfoil aerodynamic performance is presented. ...
