Short summary
The paper compares upwind and downwind three-bladed configurations for a 10 MW wind turbine in terms of power and loads. For the downwind case, the study also considers a load-aligned solution with active coning. Results indicate that downwind solutions are slightly more advantageous than upwind ones, although improvements are small. Additionally, pre-alignment is difficult to achieve in practice, and the active coning solution is associated with very significant engineering challenges.
