TAC Turbine Update

Although updates on our Clarkson turbine install have dropped off (my fault due to a broken arm incident…) work has been progressing steadily. It is an enjoyable experience getting the campus students involved.  They are developing a web-based interface for the unit that collects data and displays it in an interactive real-time touch screen display as well as storing all the data in a database for later analysis. A example of one of the proposed interfaces is shown below, complete with a video feed of the turbine. They hope to go live in a couple months, so stay tuned!

 

Turbine on the Roof!

The DTI 3.0 install at Clarkson University will be on the roof of the Technology Advancement Center. A specially designed pad and guy wire arrangement was constructed to secure the turbine. The turbine will have a clear access to prevailing winds from the WSW and as both a research and teaching tool, the Clarkson DTI 3.0 wind turbine will serve a variety of needs for years to come.
