Performance and Scaling of Vertical Axis Hydrokinetic Turbines

We worked with researchers from CanmetEnergy, Natural Resource Canada, to predict the performance of Vertical Axis Turbines of varying size using CFD and subsequently develop a correlation curve between model scale and full scale.  The simulations were validated based on the experimental results we optioned while tow tank tasting turbines at NRC.  The paper presented summarizing this work was presented at EWTEC 2013.
