Best Answer

A proof of principle experiment is one designed to see if the idea is workable. Usually little if any data is collected. Example: " I wonder what happens if I push this button?" Better example: " Can energy be generated by wind?" To do a proof of principle experiment, it would only be necessary to generate "some" energy from "some" wind by "some" method. It would not be necessary to collect data or decide the practicality of a particular method.
