P6.22 The coefficient of performance of wind turbines is often expressed by the empirical formula Cp = k1(A - k2B - k3B^3 -k4)e^-Ak5
where A = 1/(TSR + k6B) - k7/(1 + B^3) (Gamma = A)
a. Plot the coefficient of performance with respect to the TSR for angle of attack (alpha = a) equal to 0, 10, 20, and 30 degrees.
Did the author mean pitch angle (beta = B) rather than angle of attack?
