Abstract

A mathematical model named 'TEETER' for a two-bladed teetered rotor has been developed which is simple enough to be used on personal computers, yet is complex enough for the results to be quantitatively useful in the design of rotors. This paper presents a comparison of TEETER model data with experimental data from a 1/20th scale model of the MOD-2 wind turbine operating in a wind tunnel. Predicted results for power and blade loads on both a teetered rotor and a rigid rotor are compared with the experimental data. Some conclusions are made concerning the accuracy of the mathematical model TEETER.
