The General Electric fan test facility has been re-installed and commissioned in the Laboratory for Noise and Vibration Control Research, located on the second floor of the Jonsson Engineering Center (JEC 2110) in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy NY. RPI provides a unique venue to have a fully dedicated facility with access to experts and graduate students specializing in different fields. A congruence of new interested RPI investigators, generator aerodynamic experts, the return of old collaborators, and the need to reduce cost and losses in generator components, conspired to re-commission an improved version of the original setup. The results presented show good correlation between CFD and measured performance.
