Alexandria, Oct. 15 -- Vestas Wind Systems has applied for United States patent for wind turbine blade design. Caponetti Fabio and Zimsen Cliff developed it.
The patent application number is 17/272455. International Patent Classification code is F03D 1/06 20060101 F03D001/06. Cooperative Patent Classification codes are F05B 2240/211 20130101, F03D 1/0675 20130101, F05B 2230/20 20130101, F05B 2280/6013 20130101 and F03D 1/0666 20130101.
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A plurality of wind turbine blades or blade portions have substantially the same size and outer geometrical shape, and corresponding plies of the blades or blade portions having the same position within the respective wind turbine blades or blade portions have different fibre orientation angles relative to a pitch axis of the respective wind turbine blade or blade portion. By changing the fibre orientation angles of the corresponding plies a bend-to-twist coupling of the blade or blade portions may be varied amongst the plurality of blades or blade portions. The blades may then be tailored according to their siting within or on a wind turbine park. A common mould shape may be used across the plurality of wind turbine blades or blade portions, together with a more streamlined blade design process."
