Experimental measurements of the hydrodynamic performance and structural loading of the Transverse Horizontal Axis Water Turbine: Part 3

Abstract:

This paper is the third of three, which describe the procedures and results for a set of experiments on various configurations of the Transverse Horizontal Axis Water Turbine (THAWT), which is a horizontally orientated variant of the Darrieus cross-flow turbine. Tests were conducted in the combined wind, wave and current tank at Newcastle University on a 0.5 m diameter rotor, while the flow depth and velocity were varied over a range of realistic Froude numbers for tidal streams. Various conf...
