The multilayer polymer stack may also comprise more than one type of polymer For example, one or more layers of a second polymer may be used to modify the elasticity or stiffness of the rolled electroactive polymer layers. The blade form 40 will similarly react to changes in the relative wind vector as it progresses through its second 180° of orbital rotation and returns to the zero degree position of its orbit. 14) urging them to a tangential position, thereby obtaining a favorable pitch angle with the relative wind R to generate maximum rotational force for their relative position in orbit.
When the rotor is at rest, the blade forms are capable of pivotal movement effected by the force of a wind current flowing against the side surfaces to a position in which the wind current flowing past the blade forms will generate sufficient lift force to begin rotation of the turbine. At low turbine speeds, the blade forms 40 adapt to changes in the magnitude and direction of the relative current R by obtaining a pivotal position of balance between the force of the wind R against their sides and the resisting force of their springs 146 (of FIG.

Combining actuation of the radially aligned active area sets produces a two-dimensional space for deflection of top portion 189. For example, radially aligned active area sets 186 and 184 may be actuated simultaneously to produce deflection for the top portion in a 45 degree angle corresponding to the coordinate system shown in FIG.
Surmounting this characteristic normally requires a control system to vary the load placed on the turbine, or to vary the blade pitch angles more directly toward their relative wind flow, to prevent the machine from completely stopping. Because of the limits on outward movement of the weights 147 and 148, the blade 140 only coacts with either the forward or the rearward spring and weight, 146 and 147 or 146 and 148, without the other, to pivotally move from a tangential position by force of a wind current against its side. A change in either the wind flow W or the tip speed T results in a change in magnitude and direction of the relative wind current R. Generally, until the tip speed T equals the wind speed W, as the tip speed T of the rotor increases, the relative wind current R increases on the upstream side of the turbine and decreases on the downstream side of the turbine.
A low solidity ratio further provides for light weight of the turbine structure which, due to reduced inertia, will be much more responsive to wind gusts and able to accelerate quickly. 10, for low speeds of the turbine, the relative wind R decreases in magnitude as a blade form 40a moves from its zero degree orbital position to a 90° orbital position, as shown by blade form 40c. The direction of the relative wind R changes from a head-on position as shown by Ra to an oblique position with the blade form 40 as depicted by Rc, thereby applying a force to the side of the blade 40c to pivotally displace it. The pivotal displacement of the blades 40b and 40c to a more favorable pitch angle with the relative wind flow, Rb and Rc respectively, provides for maximum lift force generation by the blade form. FIG. 7 is a cross-sectional view of a deformable blade form showing an exaggerated representation of a surface deformation when wind currents flow against its other side.
FIG. 11 is a diagramatic plan view of the wind turbine blade forms showing the resultant pitch angle positioning of this invention and the resultant aerodynamic forces generated at high rotational velocities, specifically at tip speed ratios of four or greater. The pivotal movement of a blade form at standstill and at low rotational speeds of the turbine is shown in FIG.
The EPAM tire pump may be connected to sensor(s) that measures the pressure in the tire, road conditions (e.g., dry, wet, icy, etc.) and environmental conditions (e.g., temperature). For instance, the EPAM diaphragm transducers may be used to efficiently pump a fluid at an operating frequency below 30 Hz. The turbine will react by accelerating to increase rotational speed until a steady-state operating condition is again obtained where sufficient centrifugal force acts through the torque control weights 47 and 48 to restrain the blade form 40 from pivoting. Dolor de espalda causas emocionales . The resilient material would also allow for a very slight pivotal movement the blade form 40 when it is being firmly held at high speeds of the turbine 10. The tangential position of the blade form 40 as determined by the torque sensitive control 44 may be such that the chord line of the blade form 40 is skewed a few degrees from the tangent of the orbit, for beneficial performance characteristics.
Drag type wind machines are self-starting and generally produce high torque from their starting mode through low rotational speeds. The tip speed of the rotating blade cannot be faster than the speed of the wind and usually it is somewhat less. Centrifugal force generated on a blade in its orbital movement has also been used as a means for positioning a blade. However, a limit of the maximum tip speed attainable is also a limit to the amount of power which can be produced.

However, none of the previous designs have provided a wind turbine which is capable of self-starting while being highly efficient throughout its entire operational speed range. In this position, the blade form 40h assumes a favorable pitch angle with the wind current to produce a lift force Fh having a component in a direction to accelerate rotation of the turbine.

At this point the blade form 40 will quickly return to a tangential position with its orbit 38 as urged by the springs 146 (of FIG. The pivotal movement of the blade is generally controlled by a biasing means, such as a spring, which urges the blade into a tangential position with its orbit.
10 for various positions of the blade in its orbit. FIG. 5 is a central cross-sectional view of the deformable blade form in zero velocity wind current. FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view of a deformable blade form which shows an exaggerated representation of surface deformation when wind current flows past from a rearward direction. Sintomas dolor muscular y cansancio . 10, the force exerted by the wind pivots the blade form 40 inwardly so that the forward face 62 of the collar raised portion 60 pushes on the finger portion 64 of the forward weight 47 to rotate the forward weight 47 inwardly. A windspeed increase results in a change in the direction and velocity of the relative wind current R, which affects the balance between the torque sensitive control 44 and the force exerted against the side of the blade 40 by the wind. A component of the lift force in the direction of rotation is applied through a rotor structure to the rotating shaft to create a torque about the shaft.

These generated forces create a torque about the shaft 30 through the rotor arms 36, to accelerate rotation of the turbine to produce power. 10, it can be seen that, due to the pivotal capability of the blade form, a component of force in the direction of rotation of the turbine is generated by the blade form in every position throughout its orbit, except when it is moving head-on into the wind. This wind turbine is further capable of providing efficient power production throughout a large range of tip speed ratios, overcoming the limitations inherent in prior designs which have narrow efficiency bands and speed ranges. A drag-type wind machine, being limited to a maximum ideal tip speed ratio of one, is thereby limited in its capability to produce power and in its efficiency. The tip speed ratio is a critcal parameter of the lift-type machine, especially the Darrieus type wind turbines.
