Abstract

Due to its special features, the Magnus effect wind turbine allows you to produce energy at a very low speed of the wind. This fact, as well as the growing interest in the of blockchain technology, makes it possible to use this type of wind turbine in private household as part of a distributed energy system in addition to solar panels. The article describes a two blades Magnus wind turbine whose cylinders rotate by means of embedded motors. To avoid a von Karman vortex street effect that occur when the cylinders rotate in the air flow, as well as to ensure maximum power, the optimal ratio between the wind speed and the cylinder rotation speed is determined using finite element analysis. Further, the obtained relations are used in the algorithms of the wind turbine control system.
