Is it possible to simulate wind turbine flow correctly with solidworks?
I managed to somehow get reasonable results by using static wind turbine. Then I used "wall motion" and got somehow questionable results.
But I assume motion of the propeller needs to be taken into account. So if I add motion the speed of the blade tip is faster then the wind meaning it's slowing down itself. Then I change angle of the blade to get somehow similar speed and I get basically 1-2kW of power from 18m diameter wind turbine at 5m/s wind speeds.
