Wind Flow Analysis on a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
Akash Paul Savio, Abin Paul, Lovin Varghese
The main aim of this thesis is to study the flow analysis over a vertical axis wind Turbine. The wind turbine used for the analysis three rotor vertical axis wind turbine. First, a standard vertical axis wind turbine model is designed using solid modeling software such as solid works and using that software a preliminary analysis is carried out. Our aim is to analyze the von Mises stress and deformation occurred to the turbine under the given flow conditions. After generating the wind fields, the existing turbine locations and 3 months wind speed measurements (average value) is utilized for the analysis. The wind velocity used for the analysis is 72 km/hr. For the analysis we use fluent in ANSYS 13.0.
Keywords: Vertical-axis wind turbines, blade rotor, turbulence, von Mises stress
