Homework Help: Wind Turbine Simulator experiment-formula needed

  1. Jan 11, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I did an experiment on a wind turbine simulator

    I'm am doing an assignment and I need to draw up a prediction on what I think will happen

    I am trying to find a Formula where I can put in the input values ie 1500rpm,

    Excitation voltage, Hz .so that I can put in these values and I can make a prediction on the

    output voltage or power for the inputed values

    2. Relevant equations

    The generator has 4 poles and is rated 1500rpm

    A motor starts the generator and is set to 50 HZ

    We then give the generator different excitation voltages ie 10,20,30volts

    I then take the output Voltages from a display

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So far from the results of the experiment I am able to tell that higher the excitation voltage

    the higher the output voltage or power

    I also put in a graph from an actual Wind turbine With Wind speed in respect to power, which

    shows the faster the wind speed the more power out until it starts to level off.
