Detached-eddy simulation of a horizontal-axis wind turbine
2016 (English)In: 6th Symposium on Hybrid RANS-LES Methods, 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
Aerodynamic simulations of a small horizontal-axis wind turbine, suit- able for integration of wind energy in urban and peri-urban areas, are performed. Im- proved delayed detached-eddy simulation is used in the computations. Simulations are carried out for three rotation rates and inlet conditions. Aerodynamic charac- teristics of the wind turbine such as forces, power production, pressure distribution as well as flow topology are presented. The effect of different rotation rates on the turbine aerodynamics is discussed.
