Abstract

The effect of wind gust on the large reflector antenna is one of the main factors that can affect the antenna performance and therefore, this effect must be minimized to meet the strict performance requirement in the world largest steerable telescope, which is QiTai Telescope (QTT). In this paper, the characteristics of the topography as well as the wind distribution around QTT site have been analyzed and consequently, a technology for improving the wind distribution in an active way has been proposed. Additionally, an equivalent wind distribution test rig for the proposed technology has been built in the lab and the corresponding experiment has been carried out. The experimental data indicated that the proposed technology was a promising tool for regulating the wind distribution for the large reflector antenna and it was found that the proposed technology can significantly reduce the wind speed as well as the wind impact range after the wind regulation has been given in the test. The results in this paper has provided a solid foundation for the regulation of the wind distribution of the QTT site.
