The values of Ks and Kc that have been used in design practice have been derived using various different assumptions and methods, including actual inflow measurements that have originated from subscale HAWTs tested in wind tunnels. For instance, the skewed cylindrical vortex wake model of Coleman et al. [24] has been used in some forms of analyses to calculate the Ks coefficient—see Burton et al. [12]. Several experiments have also been made to measure, not just the first harmonic, but also the higher harmonic inflow coefficients—see Schepers [25] for further details.

For engineering analysis, the power curve for a wind turbine is usually plotted in a derived form as a power coefficient CP (which has already been introduced) versus a non-dimensional wind speed parameter known as the tip speed ratio (TSR), XTSR. The TSR is defined as XTSR ¼ turbine tip speed XR ¼ wind speed V1 ð39Þ Aerodynamics of Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines 25 Fig. 14 Representative airpower coefficient versus tip speed ratio curve for a constant rotational speed HAWT Notice that the value of XTSR will change through either variations of wind speed and/or with variations in turbine speed.

In fact, it is here that the application of CFD methods may make a more significant shorter-term impact on wind turbine design. In a typical lifting line approach, the blade span is divided into discrete spanwise segments. A bound vortex is placed along the 1/4-chord of the blades, and control points are located the 3/4-chord; the bound circulation and lift are assumed to be constant over each segment. This circulation is then uniquely determined by imposing flow tangency at the control points.
