One week to go!

WE Athens 2014

With just a week to go until WEAthens2014 kicks off, preparations are well and truly underway here in Athens:

The video above shows the rotor of a 1.2m Piggott turbine mounted onto a variable speed drive to control rpm. A torque meter is mounted in line with the rotor to measure mechanical power via rpm and torque. On Thursday morning, NTUA students will take you through the experimental procedure used to measure the Cp-TSR curves that characterise a wind turbine rotor’s performance.
