Savonius (Two-Blade) Wind Turbine, CFD Simulation (2-D) Ansys Fluent Training

In this project, a 2-D Savonius Wind Turbine has been simulated, and the simulation results have been investigated by ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

The savories wind turbine is a type of vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) used to generate electricity from wind energy. The turbine consists of several curved airfoil blades mounted on a rotating shaft or framework. In this type of turbine, the main rotor is positioned vertically.

The most important advantage of vertical wind turbines is that they do not need to be adjusted to the wind direction and can also be used at low altitudes.

The three-dimensional geometry of this project has been produced with Design Modeler software. Two blades with 350mm diameter and 25mm thickness located in a rotating circle with 1000mm diameter surrounded by 8000mm*4000mm rectangle were sketched.

We carry out the model’s meshing using ANSYS Meshing software. The element number is 58468.

Also, the transient solver is enabled due to the present problem in which we have used the mesh motion option.

Savonius Methodology

In this project, a two-blade Savonius wind turbine was simulated using mesh motion in Ansys Fluent software, and the results were investigated. Air enters the fluid domain from the inlet with 10m/s velocity while the turbine rotates with a constant angular velocity of 40rpm.

Our final goal is to illustrate the pressure and velocity distribution and animate the fluid motion behind the turbine. Moreover, the SST k-omega model can solve turbulent fluid equations due to its advantage in capturing fluid flow patterns near and far from the blades’ surfaces.

Savonius Conclusion

After the solution, two-dimensional contours related to the pressure, velocity, and streamlines are obtained. Figures in this product gallery show a variety of contours of fluid changes during its motion through turbine blades.

According to the results, pressure and velocity distribution are distinctly different in the inner and outer blades. The flow enters the domain with 10m/s velocity.

After the collision with the inner blade, a tremendous pressure increase occurs, so the velocity magnitude decreases and reaches zero at a point known as stagnation point; This may cause negative torque that is not our preference.

On the other hand, the outer blade experience a high-velocity flow on its back, which tends to push the blade clockwise.

    The explanation of the Savonius turbine simulation is fantastic, especially understanding the velocity impacts on blade performance. Will you be showing a comparison between simulated results and real-world data to verify the accuracy?

      Thank you! While we focus on providing detailed simulations, the product you’re reviewing demonstrates the performance of a Savonius turbine within a controlled simulation environment. Typically, there are more extensive studies or additional steps necessary to directly validate simulation results with real-world data, which includes empirical measurements and field tests. Although not detailed in this specific product, comparative analysis is usually a critical phase of CFD projects for modeling real-life behavior. For this particular educational training, real-world data validation may not be included, and the focus is more on understanding the simulation aspects using ANSYS Fluent tools.

    Can you explain the term ‘negative torque’ mentioned in the conclusion overview?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Negative torque in the context of a wind turbine refers to the opposing force that acts against the desired rotational movement. It is typically caused when airflow generates pressure on part of the structure that results in a force that pushes in the opposite direction to the rotation generated by wind energy. This can reduce the overall efficiency of the turbine since some of the energy from the wind gets used in dealing with this counterproductive force.

    I’ve been doing a study related to Savonius Wind Turbines and your product description is quite informative. Does the simulation take into account dynamic changes in wind direction or it only covers constant wind flows from one direction?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this 2-D simulation of the Savonius Wind Turbine, we have considered a consistent wind flow entering the domain from one direction at a stated velocity. We currently have not incorporated dynamic wind direction changes in this study, as it typically requires a more complex, possibly 3-D, simulation framework to accurately capture such effects.
