An investigation of ducted and open-centre tidal turbines employing CFD-embedded BEM

Abstract:

This paper presents a numerical investigation of ducted tidal turbines, employing three-dimensional Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes simulations. Bidirectional ducted turbines are modelled with and without apertures, referred to as ducted and open-centre turbines respectively. The turbine rotors are represented through a CFD-integrated blade element momentum model, employing realistic rotor data, capturing swirl and blade drag in addition to the extraction of linear momentum. The performances ...
