The Boeing Company, under contract to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), has completed a test program on the Mod-2 wind turbines at Goodnoe Hills, Washington. The objectives were to update fatigue load spectra for different sites, to measure vortex generator effects, and to evaluate rotational sampling techniques. This paper presents the results of these tests and assesses the adequacy of prediction techniques.
