The AB6 wind tunnel is located in the Prof. José Meseguer Ruiz building on UPM's Montegancedo campus. It has been specially designed for dynamic testing of aerodynamic profiles of wind turbines.



Its main features are:

  • Test chamber:
    • Section 2.9 m high and 0.5 m wide.
    • Length 3.2 m.
  • Maximum speed 35 m/s.
  • Equipped with 6 fans
  • Total electrical power 45 kW

 The tunnel is equipped with a system that allows vertical displacement and rotation of the models to simulate the bending and torsion of a wind turbine blade section.

It is primarily used in tests to determine the dynamic characteristics of profile behaviour and deep stall.
