Carlos Noyes’ current research focuses on designing extreme scale, downwind, morphing wind turbine rotors. The rotor blades will be dynamically adjustable with the use of a hinge to minimize the damaging blade loads. Previous projects include designing and characterizing aerodynamic fairings to minimize tower shadow effect for downwind turbines, testing super hydrophobic heat exchanger elements to be used in isothermal compressed air energy storage, and developing an electrically conductive super hydrophobic coating with the use of carbon nanotubes to explore the possibility of reversing saturation by the use of water electrolysis.
