dc.description.abstractDue to the dynamic nature of the wind resource, wind turbine blades are subjected to significant variation in flow parameters such as angle of attack. In some cases, the occurrence of dynamic stall on wind turbine blades causes load fluctuation which leads to material fatigue that tend to decrease the lifespan of the blades. In this study, the influence of a trailing edge flap (TEF) on dynamic stall effects is investigated at high angle of attack typical of wind turbines but atypical elsewhere. Pitching of the TEF was found to have a significant impact on the dynamic stall hysteresis loops responsible for the load fluctuation. Frequency analysis showed that the TEF was capable of reducing the cyclic fluctuation in the coefficient of lift and root bending moment by at least 26% and 24% respectively. These results are a significant contribution towards understanding the advantages of using TEFs and how implementing them will reduce wind turbine blade load fluctuations.en
