Biplane Wind Turbine Rotor

Biplane Wind Turbine Rotor

Now suppose that the struts that connect the two layers of blades are themselves airfoils. Would they act like the concentric rings in the Wind Turbine Concentric Rings Flow Accelerating Shroud? And if so, would the fact that each end of each strut is terminated at a turbine blade result in minimal energy loss due to vortices created by the short “concentric ring imitating” airfoil struts?
