Simulation and Evaluation set up

  • How to set up the transient simulation with real rotating motion of the turbine and simultaneous evaluation of the torque (or the power of the wind turbine) is shown in this section.
  • We deal with transient case. For simulation of the real rotating motion the interfaces between rotating part and non-rotating part of mesh shall be set as cyclicAMI (this step was already done in the mesh merging phase).
  • The pimpleFoam solver will be used for the simulation – useful for incompressible, transient + real rotation (dynamic mesh), turbulent flows.
