Wind Tunnel Calibration of 5-Hole Pressure Probes for Application to Wind Turbines

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A method to quantify the local inflow vector on a rotating turbine blade using a 5-hole static pressure probe was developed at the National Wind Technology Center. The technique permits quantification of dynamic pressure, angle-of-attack and cross-flow-angle to magnitudes of plus or minus 40 deg. in any inflow direction parallel to the probe centerline. A description of the static and dynamiccalibration procedure, iteration sequence for data reduction, and field results are included.
