Abstract

Currently the available wind energy devices, either the horizontal or vertical axis wind turbines, are designed to operate in orthogonal wind flows to generate power. However, in an urban environment, the vertical axis wind turbine is thought to be better suited for building integrated applications due to its durability and better performance in skewed and turbulent flows compared to the more common horizontal axis wind turbine. Application of wind turbines in skewed flow is a subject of increasing interest due to the improved power output of turbines in this wind condition. Skewed flow in the built environment can be referred to as the deflected wind vector at the roofs or edges of buildings that is not horizontal. Therefore, there exists a potential for better diffusion of renewable energy in the urban built environment, especially in the implementation of vertical axis wind turbines on buildings. This paper provides a critical review of the skewed wind flow phenomena, the physical characteristics of the interaction between the skewed flow with the vertical rotor, and the state-of-the-art studies of wind energy devices in skewed flow, especially in the built environment.
