Finite Element Analysis of Monopole Tower for Domestic Wind Turbine


The trending demand and necessity towards renewable energy production has lead several challenges against engineering disciplines which are integrally associated with each other. One of its kinds is the wind energy sector in developing country like India. The associated disciples like mechanical, production, electrical and finally civil & structural engineering plays key role in development of sustainable and affordable solutions. The challenges lie in the cost and performance optimization of domestic wind turbines also counts from optimization of supporting tower system for holding the main assembly up above the ground. In this research paper, the authors have tried to demonstrate the comparative study of circular monopole towers between two widely used configurations -straight and tapered. For this study, the authors have also applied the latest finite element solution capability of general purpose software ANSYS® Workbench with integrated multiple simulation schematic environment to carry out static structural analysis along with modal analysis and linear buckling analysis. At the last, the comparative advantages of tapered configuration over straight are drawn.
