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 ...
Supplementary material for "An experimental evaluation of blockage effects on the wake of a cross-flow current turbine"
These files accompany the manuscript "An experimental evaluation of blockage effects on the wake of a cross-flow current turbine". The files include turbine wake data collected in recirculating water flumes at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre's Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and the University of Washington's Harris Hydraulics ...
Supplementary material for "Effect of Aspect Ratio on Cross-Flow Turbine Performance"
(Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, 2020)
These files support the manuscript "Effect of Aspect Ratio on Cross-Flow Turbine Performance". They include time-average turbine efficiency and non-dimensional parameter datasets for each of the associated turbine experiments, which were conducted at the University of Washington Harris Hydraulics Laboratory. Additionally, ...
