SMALL WIND TURBINES - PERFORMANCE INVESTIGATION
Wind turbines operate differently in urban wind regime which is influenced by wind regime,
season, obstacles, other buildings, and other factors, so to know the performance of wind turbines in this
environment becomes a necessity. This paper proposes to analyze the performance of low power wind
turbines installed in urban areas by comparing the performances provided by the manufacturers and
experimentally. With Wind Power program is draw the power curves and calculates energy production
possibilities for each turbine, and finally quantify performance ranges for studied turbines.
Key words: small wind turbines, performance, power coefficient, VAWT, HAWT, urban, standard
