Extracting performance curves for a small wind turbine system is often a challenging and comprehensive task. There are different ways of achieving performance curves such as from wind tunnel testing or directly from field testing. The paper presents methodologies, tools, and techniques, and graphical analyses involved in producing
characteristics curves of a small wind turbine blades through vehicle test procedure. The procedure of vehicle testing is elaborated both from manual data collection and through logging the data from Campbell Scientific data logger.
