Short summary
This work presents an improvement to a popular algorithm used in the prediction of the power of vertical axis wind turbines. While, until now, the algorithm was considered valid only for low rotor speeds and a small number of blades, our improvement makes it valid for any configuration. The predictions of the improved algorithm were found to be of considerable accuracy, when validated with measurements of a small model turbine acquired in a compressed air wind tunnel.
