Performance analyses are undertaken for a windmill that features cam-guided flaps. A single-flap windmill is treated as a slider-crank mechanism with variable eccentricity. The cylinder axis is also considered alterable. The resulting computer program is used in connection with the AL-YASEER software package to study the performance of the system under various wind as well as rotor speeds. The results obtained in this manner are compared with those of wind tunnel experiments on a physical model of the windmill.
