Title: UAE6 - Sequence P - Raw Data

Abstract

Sequence P: Wake Flow Visualization, Upwind (P) This test sequence used an upwind, rigid turbine with a 0° cone angle. The wind speed ranged from 5 m/s to 15 m/s. Yaw angles of 0° to –60° were achieved. The blade tip pitch was 3°. The rotor rotated at 72 RPM. Blade and probe pressure measurements were collected. The teeter dampers were replaced with rigid links, and these two channels were flagged as not applicable by setting the measured values in the data file to –99999.99 Nm. The teeter link load cell was pre-tensioned to 40,000 N. The aluminum blade tip designed to contain a smoke generator was installed, and counterweights were installed in the non-instrumented blade tip to compensate. The turbine was positioned at the appropriate yaw angle, and the smoke generator was ignited remotely. The campaign duration was 3 minutes for all tests except P1000000, which was 2 minutes. The file name convention was the standard format except for P10000A0, which indicated a 3° pitch angle. File P1000000 used a 12° pitch angle. After these two campaigns were collected, it was determined that all subsequent data should be collected with a 3° pitch angle. Pressure data were not acquiredmore » during this sequence, so all associated data values were flagged as not applicable by setting the measured values in the data file to 0.000 Pa. Corresponding pressure data are available from Sequence H for the 3° pitch angle test points. Flow visualization data obtained from wall- and ceiling-mounted video cameras were recorded to videotape. The camera locations and calibration procedures are described in Appendix J.« less
