Onshore Wind Turbine features low-noise design.

September 30, 2016

With aerodynamic rotor blade add-ons, Model SWT-3.3-130LN can be operated at noise level of 104.9 dB. In addition to vortex generators on blade surface, trailing edges are equipped with combination of serrations and combs. Each combed teeth element creates fine vortices at point where fast air stream from above blade profile meets slower air stream below, resulting in high performance at low rotor speed. At average wind speed of 6.5 m/s, turbine harvests Annual Energy Production of 11 GWH. Read More
