Small Scale Wind Turbine

  • At t=0, the RPM is zero for the wind turbine.
  • Wind turbine slowly gains rotational speed due to the wind rotating the blades.
  • The frictional torque is zero and the wind speed is 1 m/s
  • OpenFOAM: dynamicFvMesh used with sixDoFRigidBodyMotion solver
  • AMI used to allow mesh rotation
  • 3 million grid cells
