Research & Development is a key factor for renewables energy. Politecnico di Bari is a leader in the field of renewables and ICMEA is helping them in keeping their leadership.
Small scale wind turbines, are very promising and requires studies to increase the efficiency and reliability.
ICMEA has manufactured a not confined wind tunnel, which will allow to measure the performance of the wind turbines controlling the velocity of the wind by means of frequency converter driven fans and measuring. The wind velocity vector in the field and the pressure on the blades can also be measured.
