Dear Patil,

What is relation of moment to torque? I mean how do you convert moment to torque?

i am taking moments from report forces --moments -- here u have to specify centre of roatations of moments which u wanted if u r centre is zero zero then give centre of roations =00 ... ya i am taking that momont is torque ....

sorry, when i wrote "HAWT like yours" i mean VAWT. But the Cp values i gave to u are right. I'm doing simulation on a VAWT similar to yours but i have 5 blades instead of 4 and a non-symmetric airfoil. But this don't mean ur turbine works with drag; Lift is always bigger than drag for airfoil, if they work in normal condition (no-stall).
So your turbine works with lift.
I have looked at your model, i think that cylinder surface are too near blades, and the free stream volume is also too little. I think u must have a bigger cylinder in whinch locate the turbine and a bigger free stream volume. If u can't becouse u have to simulate in a real wind tunnel maybe u have to use a scaled model and so reduce the scale of your model.

For my simulations I have a problem, i had a report moment of 7600 N-m, how i can obtain the power? as i wrote after if i multiply for the time step i obtain a too high value.....

hi dear esp
i have the problem as you had.
my torque amounts which are take from turbine are too big .
what can i do??
how did you figure out your problem?

Bye.
hi enry
i had simulated a wind turbine using fluent and now i want to calculate the power out put
i,m using this formula: p=torque (NM) *omega(rpm)*2*pi /60
and my rotation axis is y and my center of rotation is (0,0,0).i had set my moment center on (0,0,0) too.
the amount of this power output is 10 times bigger than real results.

what can i do
would you plz help me??

i thought u r formula for calculating power is worng ..use...............
power= cp /(1/2 * raho*A*Vinfi ^3)

tnx dear
would you plz what you mean of "cp" ,"raho" and the other parameters
in addition i,m using fluent for my simulation.

HERE CP=Coefficeint of power ,
raho= dencity of liquid for water =1000 for air=1.998,
Vinfi = inlet velocity kkkkkkask if u need any help

what is the amount of cp??
can i find it in fluent results????

Hi i am doing CFD of aircraft propeller.
i want to know torque which i got from fluent is ok ????
thrust force which i got from fluent is ok ?????
or there is need to calculate thrust by momentum equation for it.. . . . .
i.e

T = [ MASS FLOW RATE * (Ve - Vi ) ]

looking forward.
thanks
