dc.description.abstractROSEO-BIWT is a new Building-Integrated Wind Turbine (BIWT) intended for installation on the edge of buildings. It consists of a Savonius wind turbine and guiding vanes to accelerate the usual horizontal wind, together with the vertical upward air stream on the wall. This edge effect improves the performance of the wind turbine, and its architectural integration is also beneficial. The hypothetical performance and design configuration were studied for a university building in Eibar city using wind data from the ERA5 reanalysis (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts’ reanalysis), an anemometer to calibrate the data, and the actual small-scale behavior in a wind tunnel. The data acquired by the anemometer show high correlations with the ERA5 data in the direction parallel to the valley, and the calibration is therefore valid. According to the results, a wind speed augmentation factor of three due to the edge effect and concentration vanes would lead to a increase in working hours at the rated power, resulting annually in more than 2000 h.en
dc.description.sponsorshipThe research leading to these results was carried out in the framework of the Programme Campus Bizia Lab EHU (Campus Living Lab) with a financial grant from the Office of Sustainability of the Vice-Chancellorship for Innovation, Social Outreach and Cultural Activities of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). This programme is supported by the Basque Government. We acknowledge also the availability given by the School of Engineering of Gipuzkoa-Eibar in the University of Basque Country, the EDP-Renewable awards in which we obtained the main award in September 2017, the Youth Enterprise Grant of UPV/EHU, and the project GIU17/02 of EHU/UPV. All computations and representations of this work were developed using the programming language Ren
