Moment Coefficient Monitor
I was hoping somebody could help me with this question...
I'm modelling the performance of a horizontal-axis wind turbine as part of my thesis and need to obtain values of torque. I'm running the inlet at 4.5m/s and then using a moving reference frame at differing speeds to simulate fluid flow. I've put a Moment monitor about the Z-axis from the turbine centre and have got values of between 8.2 (750rpm) and 15.6 (1000rpm).
The turbine is 0.344m in radius giving a swept area of 0.372m2.
I've run the solution on a k-e segregated solver with convergence of 0.0001.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks
Hi, I'm sorry this is when using FLUENT 6.2
