wind turbines measured data
into the search engine “Google”. This is what I found:
Ignoring refs. 1 and 2 (this site), let’s see what came up………
3: BWEA: BRITISH WIND ENERGY ASSOCIATION
This gave a graph showing the output for two thirds of a revolution of a wind turbine (yes, you read it correctly).
4. A COMPARISON BETWEEN PREDICTED AND MEASURED DATA FROM WIND TURBINE……(HARVARD)
This page told me it had data from a turbine in a wind tunnel. It didn't. Perhaps I had to pay. In which case - why was it on the public internet system?
5. MEASURED DATA FOR THE SANDIA 34-METER VERTICAL AXIS WIND TURBINE (HARVARD)
See above comment. No data available.
6. WIND POWER - WIKIPEDIA
Lots of interesting stuff, but no readings of measured turbine data.
7. SCIENCEDIRECT - RENEWABLE ENERGY: WIND TURBINE ……..
This page had a densely-written summary of an academic paper, impenetrable to the non-scientist, and no data.
8. NPOWER RENEWABLES: LANGHAM WIND FARM
Theoretical paper about a non-existent wind farm. Unsurprisingly, no data.
9. EX176-MAPPING A WIND FARM
A paper about computer modelling of wind turbine performance. By its nature, no data.
10. MODELLING A STAND ALONE WIND TURBINE FOR USE IN A HYBRID BIOMASS….
Computer simulation of the behaviour of a horizontal axis wind turbine. Again, no data.
I could have progressed to the next page, but somehow my enthusiasm had gone. So I ask, again -
Is there anyone out there with decent data from a domestic wind turbine? Will you share it with us?
Many years ago I asked a friend (perpetually unemployed) what his last job had been. He smiled, and said "Coronation Program Seller".
At the time, I thought this a witty reply, But it occurred to me later that he could have said "I measure the output of domestic wind turbines".
