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

Improved results with new shielding

  • Using APG correction in conjunction with SSM length scale may be redundant.
  • SSM Length Scale:  Reduced length scale near-wall region à Reduced eddy viscosity in the outer layer.
  • APG correction: Re-calibration of Von Karman constant based on APG
