A Python desktop app for automated turbine data acquisition in the UNH tow tank.

Screenshot

Test plan

A matrix of test parameters should be created and placed in the Test plan directory. Each "section" of the experiment gets its own CSV file. See test/Test plan for an example. The test plan, if one exists, is loaded into the GUI at startup. To change, it must be edited externally and reloaded.

Types of runs

In the runtypes module, there are classes to represent each type of run:

  • TurbineTow
  • TareDragRun
  • TareTorqueRun

Each of these subclass PyQt's QThread. For future experiments, there will likely be a TurbineTowInWaves or options in TurbineTow for wave generation with makewaves.
