3. Results



When comparing curved and flat, the curved blades generally generated more power. However, when comparing the shapes of the blades, the results vary greatly. On a side note, the rectangular flat blade even went backwards and generated negative power output. Specifically, when the fan was parallel to the turbine plane, out of the three flat blades, the triangular flat blades produced the most power. Out of the three curved blades however, the rectangular curved blade produced the most power. When the fan was perpendicular to the turbine plane, out of the three blades, the triangular flat blade still produced the most amount of power. The triangular is still consistent as it still produced the most amount of power out of the three curved blades. In conclusion, the triangular blades are the best in general as they produced the most power out of four of the tests.
