DeepCwind Wind Consortium’s Design and Testing Team Heads to MIT

The DeepCwind Consortium researchers for floating turbine design and lab testing are preparing a 1:130 scale turbine to test at the Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel on the MIT campus in Massachusetts in February. Researchers will test the turbine at a variety of wind speeds and blade pitch angles. Torque and the resulting power generation will be measured and used to inform numerical modeling and design of a 1:50 scale model to be tested in April.
