Abstract
Wind turbine performance is critically dependent on the geometry of the rotor wake. Acquisition of detailed wake data is of major importance for further development of wind turbine studies. This paper presents the results of a preliminary experimental study of the flow past a model turbine using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), a whole field velocimetry method, with a scanning beam system of flow illumination. The results strongly validate the PIV technique applied to studying wind turbine wakes. PIV provides the means whereby detailed full-field data can be obtained and an experimental data base for wake velocities and structure established.
