dc.description.abstractThe primary objective of the MEXICO (Model Experiments in Controlled Conditions) project was to generate experimental data from which the uncertainties of the computational tools employed to predict wind turbine performance and loads. Pressure sensors were used for pressure measurements while PIV was used with the major aim of tracking the tip vortex trajectory. The aerodynamic forces on the blades were derived found from the pressure measurements and were used in an inverse free wake lifting line model to compute the positions of the tip vortices. From these the wake skew angle was derived. A relationship between the skew angle and the thrust coefficient was thus drawn.en_GB
