KT 36" blades -
WHAT MAKES OUR BLADES SO SPECIAL?
 
They lift and push at the same time -
"The boundary layer effect on these blades is pure perfection"
 
Thermodyne KT Pantera blades made by hydrogenappliances.com lose remarkably little energy in terms of efficiency. The whole blade is perfection and could only be described as one big long wind catching 'sweet-spot' from bass to tip.
The very best electricity generating turbines are not pushed by the wind so much as they are pulled. Making electricity needs medium-high RPMs at the alternator, and blades that are pushed can never go faster than the true wind speed, usually much slower. These are called "drag turbines". Good turbines rely on aerodynamic lift to turn them: the forces involved are greater, and the blades can spin many times faster than the wind, just as a catamaran can sail faster than true wind speed.
A blade with tip-speed ratio (TSR) of 5 will spin 50mph in a 10mph wind, creating its own apparent wind of ~51 mph. The apparent direction of that wind moves closer to the blade's rotational plane the faster it spins; likewise, the blade tip sees a faster and shallower apparent wind than the blade root.
As the apparent wind contacts the leading edge, it splits. Some air goes along the convex back, some goes along the concave front. The streams adhere to the blade surface and adjacent air by boundary layer effect.
The concave side air slows down, generating a net positive air pressure; the air flowing over the convex back of the blade speeds up, creating a net (and stronger) negative air pressure. Both sets of pressures act perpendicular to the surface of the blade. The forces act in all different directions and intensities, but the net force is a flexing and forward one. The flex force is canceled by the blade's stiffness; what's left is a forward vector of surprising strength:
There's a fairly narrow window of apparent wind direction or attack angle - in which a lifting airfoil will operate efficiently. The flow along its sides must be smooth, and it must remain attached to the blade surface. If it detaches, the result is lost lift, terrible drag, and turbulence, with attendant noise and vibration. These conditions are known as stalling (attack angle too steep) and luffing (attack angle too shallow.)
Wind turbine designers have developed numerous strategies to keep the apparent wind angle correct, which is especially hard given that different parts of the blade are moving different speeds, and to keep lift strong and constant along the full length of the foil. These strategies can be grouped in pairs: Taper and draft, twist and pitch. Near the hub of a propeller-style-turbine, the apparent wind is slower and closer in direction to the true wind, the blade root has a wide chord (breadth) and a fairly deep draft, and it faces more toward the true wind. The blade tip is traveling very fast, too much breadth or 'cup' would create crippling drag, so the blade there tends to be narrower and flatter. The tip also experiences an apparent wind nearly in line with its rotational plane, so it needs very little twist.
Finally, the best HAWTs (horizontal-axis wind turbines) are able to rotate the entire blade to vary TSR, optimize lift, and keep the alternator spinning at its prime electricity-making RPM. They use taper, draft, twist and pitch all at once.
For what it's worth a brief look at why the world's best engineers design HAWTs rather than VAWTs (vertical axis wind turbines). The very worst VAWTs are pure drag machines: paddles pushed by the wind. Their maximum apparent wind is the true wind MINUS their own rotational speed, so they can never go fast and the wind's force is gutted. And two-thirds of the time, a given blade is either contributing nothing or plowing headlong INTO the wind. These generally fall under the heading of Savonius Rotors. Their TSRs are always less than 1.0, and their efficiencies are gruesome.
Better, though not much, is a class of semi-lifting VAWTs classified as Darrius, Modified Darrius, or Gyro Rotors. These include the famous 'eggbeaters' and more modern designs. Almost half the time, their blades are on or near a "beam reach," moving perpendicular to the true wind, which sailors know is the fastest, most-efficient point of sail. But the back blade is operating in the wind shadow of the front one, its draft must somehow be inverted, the downwind blade is dragging some, and the upwind blade is a sea anchor. Darrius blades are pulling maybe 50% of the time. They aspire to TSRs of 2.5, they do spin faster than the wind, but not much.
A HAWT experiences great lift over a 100% power stroke. That's why GE, Mitsubishi, and Vestas build them that way. Pound for pound and dollar for dollar HAWT'S are winning the economic battle for cheap and reliable wind power.

DO YOU NEED A CENTER HUB? "Hub-Bub Talk" USE A TURBO CONE

THE "MORE BLADES" THEORY and ARGUMENTS ©1989
 
Wind turbines experience "PROGRESSIVE LOSS" or Cascade Failure when under heavy loads. This means that the slower the rotor spins under load the MORE likely it is to spin even slower and so on (Cascade Failure) until the blades are moving so slow they can't catch enough wind to be effective any longer because of excessive "Way-Holes". This is why two and three blade systems need a computer to keep the blades rev'd up to speed. The computer removes the load by making fast adjustments and this keeps the blades moving quickly eliminating cascade failure. However a computer become less necessary when you have lots of blades working for you since cascade failure is greatly reduced by having the extra surface area of 6 blades. 3 blades will work just as good as 6 blades IF the design is 100% perfect. Having 6 blades is an EXTREMELY forgiving system for those of you experimenting with using motors as generators!
 
"Cascade Failure";
The slower a blade spins the more likely it is to spin even slower and so on until it can no longer adequately catch wind as "Way-Holes" form in the propellers diameter matrix area.
 
"Way-Holes";
A potential power producing area of a wind turbine propellers diameter that is allowing air to pass through in-between blade strikes.
or - The absence of a wind turbine blade in the winds path at any given point in rotation time usually caused by over-amperage loads including connection to lower voltage batteries used in low wind speed areas or high amperage appliances or lack of blade area in the original turbine design or a mismatched PMA to blade area ratio in the design. (Way-Holes are also called 'The Unengaged Blade Area' )
 
 
IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO THIS ONE SIMPLE LITTLE QUESTION IN THE END.
 
The REAL question becomes, WHAT is cheaper. Extra BLADES or COMPUTER controls???
Well, at least in the case of small wind turbines it's a no-brainer,, Extra blades are much cheaper than electronic controls and definitely more dependable too!!
In the final analysis more blades equals super low wind speed start up plus the added benefit's of simplicity and dependability. "Hub-Bub Talk" ©

The microphone in this video was placed only about 12" away from the blades
so you can clearly "hear" the power and spin speed. At distance these blades
are surprisingly quiet and non-offensive to be around. Very neighbor friendly.

Spinning does NOT equal power!
 
 
There are many blades on the market that can spin in any tiny little
breeze BUT spinning SLOW will NEVER give you high charging amperage!
 
Our blades coupled to our LOW cogging - easy turning PMA's will spin
800% faster than fat blades.
 
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY BLADES THAT SLOWLY SPIN AROUND
ALL THE TIME BUT NEVER "TAKE OFF" into the high RPM range.
 
For a direct drive PMA speed is way more important!
 

Warning: Please note that these carbon fiber wind turbine blades are very sharp and can cause severe injury if handled improperly. Treat these blades with the same respect you would have for a sharp sword.   These blade sets can turn at well over 2000 RPM on a windy day and can cause severe bodily injury when they are spinning. Use extreme caution! Never mount or work on a wind turbine on a windy day. Never place a turbine in any area that can be accessed by inexperienced persons or children. We assume no liability for ANY injuries caused by these products.

Dear Bob: I thought I would drop you a line and let you know about the turbine I ordered from you, it was to replace a southwest wind power windseeker 503, because it continually trashed the blades, I have gone through three of their sets of blades, and now they stopped making and servicing them. As I was assembling the one I received from you the windseeker was on the bench right next to it, and just for the heck of it I thought your hub and blades might go on the windseeker, which it did, I remounted the wind seeker with your hub and six blades and never saw it do such a good job, for nine years I have been hiding from this thing, and now I can stand right underneath it, your advertisement on your web site is 100% truthful, your blades turn with very little wind, and they withstand very high winds, and make very little noise, and virtually no vibration. I would recommend your blades to anybody that wishes to improve their current Wind Chargers. I haven't had a chance to mount your wind turbine yet as I am waiting on another set of blades. And if anybody wants to know about your customer service, I would highly recommend them to you, you always answer your e-mails and are very helpful.
thank you
