Successful test of our river turbine at IOT in Newfoundland

14 Oct

Clean Current successfully tested its 1.5 metre diameter river turbine in the tow tank managed at the Canada National Research Council’s Institute of Ocean Technology located in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Testing included turbine operation performance, off angle performance, generator output performance, turbine drag as well as power and thrust vs. rpm.  We performed approximately 286 passes.  Overall, the unit performed slightly better than our CFD calculations at peak power.
