Abstract

Wind turbine aerodynamic characteristics play a vital role in condition monitoring and control of wind turbines in a wind power plant.
Today, the most common design of wind turbine is the horizontal axis wind turbine. In this study, horizontal axis wind turbine aerodynamic
characteristics including wind power (P), power coefficient (CP), axial flow induction factor (a), thrust coefficient (CT) and thrust (T) were
determined as a function of the hub-height wind speed. The data used in this study were measured from the Belen Wind Power Plant which is
located in Belen province in Hatay, Turkey and the total installed capacity of that power plant is 48 MW which is composed of 16 turbines.
The 5 of 16 turbines were evaluated by means of aerodynamic characteristics in detail. As a result, for 5 turbines, the maximum wind power
capacity reached 3 MW when the hub-height wind speed was 15 m/s. Also, maximum power coefficient of all turbines was calculated to be
30% - 35%.
