Topic for Master Project: Aerodynamic Aspects of Atmospheric Irrigation with Wind Turbines


At the Wind Energy Technology Institute (WETI) of Flensburg University of Applied Sciences, a system has been invented (patent pending) that allows using wind turbines (WTs) to impact on the natural water circuit of the atmosphere. The motivation for this invention is to mitigate the problem of aridity and water scarcity.
The idea revolves around the fact that the aerodynamic properties of state-of-the-art WTs are very advantageous for vaporizing water. Hence water, or water vapor, is emitted by the WT blades. It is expected that this emission has an impact on the aerodynamic performance of the blades, which is why this impact shall be assessed in a master thesis project.
