 October 20, 2005, 12:20 rotating Domain, interpase problem #1 carlos Guest   Posts: n/a Hi guys, I´m simulating the rotor of a wind-power-plant. My last simulations all terminated with errors, because there is coming a strong vortex in the whole body. This vortex is in the wrong direction of the normal wake-vortex by wind-power-plants. In the beginning of the Solver-run, the vortex is very small but after ten iterations he is rising very fast. It is a three-blade-rotor, so I´m simulating only 120 degrees in a rotating Domain.The symmetrie-planes are connected with an interphase (Periodic,rotational,GGI).The round Plane which connects the symmetrie-planes ist a free-slip-Wall. It seems as if the symmetrie Planes won´t work right, but I made a lot of simulations like this an they work. So if anybody can help I will be very greateful.
