UpWind Solutions has installed Vortex Generator (VG) technology at six of BP Wind’s US wind farms.
They VG are installed at Titan 1, in South Dakota; Edom Hills in California, Flat Ridge 1 in Kansas; and Trinity Hills, Silver Star 1 and Sherbino 2 in Texas. When several hundred VGs are installed on wind turbine blades, they can improve aerodynamic efficiency and can increase the power generated by the turbines. UpWind Solutions’ vortex generators are a cost effective upgrade that improves the cross flow on wind turbine blades, resulting in an estimated 1-3% increase in annual energy production (AEP).
