Fluid Structure Interaction of a loaded Darrieus Marine Current Turbine

Abstract

The present study aims to develop a model to simulate in 2 dimensions, the motion of the fluid and of the loaded Darrieus turbine without imposing the rotational speed. A resistive torque has been added to account for the load of a generator. Experimental and numerical studies were conducted and presented here. The experiment was setup in the air first, on a wind turbine for reason of convenience. The simulations were made with Fluent (v14) for which a User Defined Function was developed. Then the experimental conditions were reproduced numerically for three cases. The study focuses on the determination of a factor (f) giving the relationship between the experimental and the 2 dimensions simulations resistive torque. The results are quite satisfying in this preliminary study as it demonstrate that the model developed works well. Some improvement has to be made to refine the value of f .
