The intern will contribute towards the design and modeling of an improved air foil for a novel wind turbine that employs two sets of contra-rotating blades. An analysis of blade strength will also be performed for a blade design suitable for volume manufacturing, developed in conjunction with company suppliers. The results of the modeling and analysis will be validated in a field trial at the company's test facility, as time permits. The improved air foil will increase power output and reduce manufacturing cost and payback period for the wind turbine.
