Hi all
I have designed a VAWT on my own.I am planning to carry out a study on this to know about the design's Pros and Cons using CFD.Kindly explain me how to carry out this using Flow Simulation..
I want the turbine to spin based on the velocity of the fluid.
This is to know at different wind velocities what will be my turbine's RPM.
A picture of the design has been attached.
The two vertically placed aerofoils are deflectors to change the direction of the wind so that the wind does not hit the opposite side and resist the turbines's motion.
Well i am not a pro in all these stuff,I am almost new to this.So bear with my questions which may sound stupid sometimes.
