Title (EN) SYSTEMS, DEVICES AND METHODS FOR IMPROVING EFFICIENCY OF WIND POWER GENERATION SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTÈMES, DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS POUR AMÉLIORER LE RENDEMENT DE SYSTÈMES DE GÉNÉRATION D'ÉNERGIE ÉOLIENNE
Abstract:
(EN) According to some aspects of the invention, a turbine, such as a wind turbine, is provided that includes one or more fluid (e.g., air) flow components for inducing a secondary fluid flow that emanates from a rearward location on the turbine to minimize wake effects. According to some aspects of the invention, arrays of turbines, such as in wind farms, are provided that comprise a plurality such turbines. According to further aspects of the invention, methods are provided for minimizing wake effects in a wind turbine and for improving the efficiency of a wind farms.
(FR) Selon certains aspects de l'invention, une turbine, telle qu'une turbine éolienne, est disposée, laquelle comprend un ou plusieurs composants d'écoulement de fluide (par exemple, de l'air) pour induire un écoulement de fluide secondaire qui provient d'un emplacement vers l'arrière sur la turbine afin de réduire au minimum les effets de sillage. Selon certains aspects de l'invention, des groupements de turbines, tels que des fermes éoliennes, comprennent une pluralité de telles turbines. D'autres aspects de l'invention concernent des procédés pour réduire au minimum les effets de sillage dans une turbine éolienne et pour améliorer le rendement de ferme éolienne.
