Turbine Testing at NRC Towing Tank

In 2008, we completed a turbine test program at the NRC towing tank in St John’s, NL.  The data acquired was used to design the Mi1 turbine.

In addition, we worked with UBC to perform a series of experiments aimed at investigating interactions between two vertical axis turbines.

We also tested an airfoil shaped duct designed by a UBC graduate student.
