    Abstract: The present study involves a numerical investigation of laminar boundary layer flow over a flat plate, controlled by the Prandtl equations. The flow is governed by a dimensionless third-order system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The finite difference method is employed to solve the system, which serves as an approximation technique.... Show More

    Abstract: The aim of this work is to propose a new method for calculating the aerodynamic forces of wind turbine blades and the power developed by them. To this end, the blade element momentum, prescribed wake and free wake methods were compared for speed ranges from 5 to 20m/s. The two-bladed NREL PHASE IV wind turbine with profile S 809 was used as the phy... Show More
