Abstract

Wind turbines and green energy is of high interest nowadays and the size of the powerplants keeps getting bigger and bigger. The forces that arise as the blades increase in size have the magnitude to deform the profiles. This paper proposes a new design of a support system mean to strengthen the wind turbine blade and make it operable at higher wind speeds and withstand higher force concentrations.
