ICMEA took part in Zero Emission Research Option project and is developing a facility for testing wind turbines in open environment. The plant is composed by a set of blowers mounted on a metal structure, able to produce a controlled air flow.
The plant will be flexible and effective, especially in controlling the air flow rate. The system will allow to measure the wind turbine performance as a function of the wind generated by the blowers.
The Plant is designed to stand static and dynamic operating loads, as well as the environmental actions.
The test plant is equipped with a set of sensors able to measure the turbine performance and the wind velocity and pressure.
