Abstract

The small wind turbine industry has recently seen a significant amount of growth due to the need for energy storage and a reduced dependence on fossil fuels in rural environments. A novel vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) has been developed that consists of several vertically-stacked segments. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations were performed in the present study using ANSYS CFX, a commercially-available CFD package, to characterize the behavior of the new VAWT. Static three-dimensional CFD simulations were conducted. The static torque characteristics of the turbine and the simplicity of design highlight its suitability for the small wind turbine market. The major factor for generating the power through the VAWT is the velocity of air and the position of the blade angle in the VAWT blade assembly. The study presents the effect of the position of the blade angle from 0 degree to the 30 degree on the power developed by the VAWT. Literature revealed that some parameter like wind speed, tip-speed ratio, air-strike angle, solidity, surface roughness, pitch angle has significant sensitivity for the efficiency change to the performance of the vertical axis wind turbine. So the parameter like wind speed, tip-speed ratio, air strike angle are likely to use in the research for these dissertation work. CFD workbench of ANSYS is used to carry out the virtue simulation and testing. The software generated test results are validated through the experimental readings. Through this obtainable result will be in the means of maximum constant power generation from VAWT.
