Modeling and performance calculation of a horizontal axis wind and hydrokinetic turbine: Numerical study
A small turbine, working with air and water to generate electricity, was designed and its performance was reported in this paper. The rotor diameter is 150mm. The numerical calculations of the power coefficient, torque, and tip speed ratio of turbine were carried out for a wide range of inlet velocities. The flow passing through the turbine was investigated with commercial CFD code ANSYS CFX 18
