Supplementary Material for "An Experimental Assessment of Analytical Blockage Corrections for Turbines"
These files accompany the manuscript “An Experimental Assessment of Analytical Blockage Corrections for Turbines”. The files include turbine performance data collected in the Alice C. Tyler recirculating water flume at the University of Washington and the Jere A. Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory tow tank at the University ...
Comparison of cross-flow turbine performance under torque-regulated and speed-regulated control
When experimentally evaluating the performance of a wind or water current turbine, one must impose a regulating torque on the turbine rotor by electrical or mechanical means. Some options limit this controlling torque to a purely resistive quantity, while servomotors and stepper motors allow torque to be applied in the direction ...
An experimental assessment of analytical blockage corrections for turbines
In laboratory experiments involving wind or water turbines, it is often desirable to correct measured performance for the eﬀects of model blockage. However, there has been limited experimental validation of the analytical blockage corrections presented in the literature. Therefore, the objective of this study is to evaluate ...
