Abstract

The constant reliance on sustainable energy resources is driving the research community toward adopting advanced and effective wind turbine systems. A trailing-edge segment featuring seamless and continuous morphed layout is presented. The aim is to quantitatively assess the potentials of the morphed surface in boosting the power output of small-scale wind turbines. Integration of the morphed trailing edge to the rotor blade demonstrated significant contribution in promoting power extraction particularly under low wind speed.
