Vertical axis wind turbines have recently received particular attention, as interesting alternative For small and micro generation applica- tions. However, the complex ±uid dynamic mechanisms occurring in these machines make the aerodynamic optimization oF the rotors still an open issue and detailed experi- mental analyses are now highly recommended to convert improved ±ow feld comprehen- sions into novel design techniques. The experiments were perFormed in the large-scale wind tunnel oF the Politecnico di Milano (Italy), where real-scale wind turbines For micro generation can be tested in Full similarity conditions. Open and closed wind tunnel con- fgurations are considered in such a way to quantiFy the in±uence oF model blockage For several operational conditions. Integral torque and thrust measurements, as well as detailed aerodynamic measurements were carried out to characterize the 3D ±ow feld downstream oF the turbine. The local unsteady ±ow feld and the streamwise turbulent component, both resolved in phase with the rotor position, were derived by hot wire measurements. The paper critically analyses the models and the correlations usually applied to correct the wind tunnel blockage eFFects. Results highlight that the presently available theoretical correction models do not provide accurate estimates oF the blockage eFFect in the case oF vertical axis wind turbines. The tip aerodynamic phenomena, in par- ticular, seem to play a key role For the prediction oF the turbine perFormance; large-scale unsteadiness is observed in that region and a simple ±ow model is used here to explain the diFFerent ±ow Features with respect to horizontal axis wind turbines. [DOI: 10.1115/1.4004360] Keywords: VAWT, blockage, wind Tunnel, wind turbine, aerodynamic measurements, unsteady ±ows 1 Introduction In recent years a renewed interest has arisen on vertical axis concept in wind turbines (VAWT). In the urban environment, affected by highly turbulent Fows and strong vertical velocity gra- dients, VAWT claims for several advantages: insensitivity to yaw, ability to withstand rapid changes of wind direction and to provide good performances also in skewed Fows [ 1 ], low noise emission due to low tip speed ratios [ 2 ]. ±inally the better integration in ar- chitectural projects also represents a key advantage.
