Title (EN) A WIND TURBINE COMPONENT HAVING AN EXPOSED SURFACE MADE OF A HYDROPHOBIC MATERIAL
(FR) COMPOSANT D'ÉOLIENNE COMPORTANT UNE SURFACE EXPOSÉE COMPOSÉE D'UN MATÉRIAU HYDROPHOBE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides a wind turbine component having an exposed surface made of a hydrophobic material and having a surface texture providing a Water Contact Angle (CA) of at least 150. Due to the combination between a CA over 150 and the hydrophobic material, the component becomes less vulnerable to ice formation etc. The invention further provides a method of preventing ice formation, a method of reducing noise and a blade for reducing noise from a wind turbine.
(FR)L'invention se rapporte à un composant d'éolienne comportant une surface exposée composée d'un matériau hydrophobe et comportant une texture de surface offrant un angle de contact (CA) de l'eau d'au moins 150. En raison de la combinaison entre un CA supérieur à 150 et le matériau hydrophobe, le composant devient moins vulnérable à la formation de glace, etc. L'invention se rapporte en outre à un procédé consistant à empêcher la formation de glace, à un procédé consistant à réduire le bruit et à une pale destinée à réduire le bruit provenant d'une éolienne.
