This dataset provides the power curve and the thrust curve data for the EPFL WiRE-01 miniature wind turbine (three-blade, horizontal-axis, developed in the WiRE Lab at EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland) immersed in a boundary layer, based on wind tunnel tests. In the data file, the first two columns give the test tip-speed ratio (TSR) and the corresponding power coefficient, respectively; and the 3rd and the 4th columns give the TSR and the corresponding thrust coefficient. The last three columns provide the dimension of the turbine rotor diameter, the turbine hub height and the inflow velocity at the hub height. The neutral inflow boundary layer has a turbulence intensity of 7% and a boundary layer height of 0.38m. Details of the turbine design can be found via [1].
