Simulation of a very small windturbine
for my diploma thesis I am supposed to predict the power output of a Marlec Rutland 504 wind turbine and verify my results in our wind channel.
So far I have done some research in our library and Elsevier's Science Direct but the material that has come up was rarely of any relevance to me.
I thought maybe someone around here could point me in the right direction.
- How do I go about calculating the power output? So far my plan is to integrate pressure difference times velocity over the area swept by the blades.
- What turbulence model should I use? Would LES be an interesting option?
- How big is the influence of the flow around and behind the turbine? How large does the grid have to be?
please can you send me your wind turbine gemetry ??
