Smart Blade GmbH is committed to high level, high-end research
SMART BLADE GmbH is committed to the development of highly innovative products and customized solutions as well as to high level research in the field of wind turbine aerodynamics and blade design. By introducing intelligent aerodynamic flow control solutions to both existing and new wind turbines we aim to assist wind turbine designers, manufacturers and operators to increase the operation efficiency of wind turbines. Our industrial products and our research projects cover the whole spectrum of wind turbine technology. Reliable, robust and cost effective solutions are developed for the special needs of our customers, parallel to more futuristic approaches which are investigated for the wind turbines of the future. By assisting in the creation of better wind turbines we aim to contribute to the increase of the global wind energy production.
Smart Blade Products
Wind turbine blade manufacturers as well as wind turbine operators often face problems with blade production quality or aerodynamic performance deficit. (Reduced energy yield, unsatisfactory power curve e.t.c). SMART BLADE is able to provide consulting services in the field of both wind turbine blade manufacturing and of aerodynamic performance. Custom aerodynamic performance boosting solutions (e.g. Vortex Generators) can be developed according to customers' needs and increase the energy yield of existing wind turbine blade designs.
Smart Blade Research
One of the core activities of SMART BLADE GmbH is the intensive R&D of innovative solutions in the field of wind turbine aerodynamics and blade design. Through the intensive research it is possible to remain one step ahead of the market trends and develop the future wind turbine blade innovations.
The "Prezi" below is a presentation of SMART BLADE GmbH, its products and its services. Feel free to navigate through the steps of the presentation or to freely wander around zooming in & out in order to discover our activities.
Visualization Wind Tunnel
Wind tunnels are usually extremely expensive and bulky. In order to demonstrate the basic principles of wind tunnel testing, the research team of SMART BLADE designed and constructed the "Small Visualisation Wind Tunnel". It is an affordable, low turbulence, low noise, portable wind tunnel, ideal for flow mechanics' lectures as well as for general eye-catching demonstrations. It is available as a standardized design but it is possible to develop custom designs according to customer requirements.
