Air X ASU Power Curve

Tests on the Air X at Applachian State University's Beech Mountain Small Wind Research and Demonstration Facility by Brent Summerville differ inexplicably with power curve tests on the Air X at the Wulf Test Field.


Unlike the measurements at the Wulf Test Field, there is surprisingly little scatter in the data from the Air X at ASU. Moreover, when corrected for sea level conditions, the ASU data show the Air X as meeting its power rating of 400 W. This is more than twice that measured at the Wulf Field.
