Project Description

Wind energy is one of the best and most energy-efficient sources. Because it exists everywhere.

Urban and rural areas also have a high potential for exploiting wind energy, and this is where the perpendicular wind turbine is important.

In the vertical axis wind turbines, called VAWT, the main rotor is positioned vertically. The most important advantage of a vertical wind turbine is that there is no need to adjust the orientation of the wind direction, and can also be used at low altitude. In turbines or vertical axis rotors, the axis of rotation is perpendicular to the ground and the blades rotate parallel to the ground. Because of this, the surface that is driven by the wind will have to move in the direction of the wind flow after half a turn and this will reduce their power factor. For this reason, the curve of the blade has particular importance in these rotors. These wind turbines should be installed closer to the ground and at low altitude. Because the wind velocity is lower, less energy is produced than the specific size of the turbine. The airflow near the ground and other objects can create a turbulent flow that results in vibration, including noise and fatigue, which may result in increasing maintenance costs and reduction in lifetime.

In this analysis, it has been tried to simulate and analyze the airflow surrounding a vertical axis wind turbine using the Ansys Fluent software.
