Abstract

The aim of this work is to analyze the influence of the pressure losses of a diffuser-augmented wind turbine (DAWT) on the extractable power. Multielement AQ1 diffuser geometries, generated with Salome and meshed with snappy HexMesh, are studied numerically with OpenFOAM® to find a configuration of maximum área expansion (reducing flow detachment), for different pressure losses at the actuator disk. Different geometries are studied with a k−ε turbulence model. The influence of the vanes inside the diffuser has also been analyzed. The results of the present work show the importance of a careful design of the diffuser entrance.
