Quick Question. What are the advantages/disadvantages of using front or rear mounted blades. Most have front mounted, but I have seen some, rear mounted. I would have thought rear were best, as you would then have wind assist to help point the turbine, while front mounted would have to be 100% power driven. Fof
We are unclear by your description of front blades and rear blades, or whether you are referring to counter-rotating blades or contra-rotating blades. Clearly a front facing set of blades would receive the full force and energy of the wind while the airflow over a rear set of blades is affected by any obsticles (nacelle, hub, column, etc.) in front of the blades. Dual bladed generators are more common in tidal stream applications.
my company is developing a transmission that doubles the torque delivered by the rotor. Information available Regards
Would like to know more about this!

I have to generate 3 kW of electricity from Wind turbine. Will you please suggest me the design required for size & blades & rpm of turbine ?
i lovve physics
In VAWT design do you know if the blades rotate with the lift centripetally towards the inside or orientated such that the lift is centrifugal with respect to the center hub ? Is there any advantage on one over the other ?
It depends on the design, VAWT can be of a Savonius drag design or a Darrieus lift design. Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
