What is another name for a turbine blade?
Another name for a turbine blade is a vane.
In a wind turbine - does increasing the blade length or decreasing the blade length increases the speed of the turbine?
The length of a blade depends on the style (impulse or reaction), the overall size of the turbine, whether it is an axial flow or radial flow turbine, and where the blade is located within turbine of an axial flow turbine. One thing that is constant: the length of the blade increases from the steam or gas inlet to the discharge of the unit. The profile will gradually increase in diameter from inlet to discharge.
wind pushes on the blades of the wind turbine which pass on this motion to the generator to produce electricity. The energy and the speed of a wind turbine depend on the blade pitch control which depends on the angel of the blade chord to the plane of rotation. The blade pitch determines the speed of the turbine which also depends on the wind speed. Energy is directly proportional to the speed of the turbine…
