  • Nacelle Model : GEWIND-PCS_2_0.tar (avail. to GE)

    • Nacelle is approximated as a non-rotating ‘Rankine Body’.

    • User Input : Height, Width, Axial Location (dimens. by R)

    • Model finds position/strength of Source/Sink pair.

    • Influence coefficients are added to each point in RANS boundary.

    • => … acts as a perturbation to the incoming wind speed Uwind.

    • May reduce need for complex blade/nacelle grid topology.

    • No feedback from GE so far.

  • Latest Version : GEWIND-PCS_2_1.tar (avail. to GE)

    • New version of asymptotics for influence coefficients [Chattot, 2007].

Extension of Lifting-Line (LL) to Lifting-Surface (LS) - PCS

  • Motivation :

    • Current PCS limited to LL at blade ¼ chord, vortex filaments emanating from trailing edge (TE).

    • Bound Vorticity GjB concentrated at LL. => Effect of LL position unclear.

    • Spread LL (respect. GjB ) along sectional chord to receive …

Extension of Lifting-Line (LL) to Lifting-Surface (LS) - PCS

  • Implementation :

    • Obtain Gi,jB from GjB using …

      • ‘Parabolic Plate’ vorticity distribution on RANS mesh.

    • Treat each blade surface element in RANS zone as an ‘Elemental Horseshoe Vortex’ located on the blade’s sectional camber line.

    • Determine influence coefficients for the Lifting-Surface (LS).

      • (… at small computational expense)

    • Satisfy the following conditions …

‘Quasi-Steady’ PCS - PCS-Q

  • Motivation :

    • Current (steady) PCS limited to zero-yaw condition.

    • Extension of PCS as an efficient hybrid method for wind turbine blade analysis under yawed flow conditions.

  • Implementation :

    • Extend vortex model to account for yaw in vortex structure. Neglect ‘shed’ vorticity.

    • Solution methodology of a N-bladed wind turbine in yawed flow.

    • Converge to steady-state at each azimuth angle.

PCS-Q is suitable for small yaw angles (<15deg), yet not capable of handling ‘dynamic stall’ and/or ‘blunt trailing edge airfoils’.

‘Unsteady’ PCS - PCS-U

  • Motivation :

    • PCS-Q limited to small yaw angles.

    • Extension of PCS-Q to a fully ‘unsteady’ hybrid method.

  • Implementation :

    • Extend vortex model of PCS-Q to account for ‘shed’ vorticity in vortex structure. (Perform subiterations on convection equation along helicoidal sheet)

    • Solution methodology of a N-bladed wind turbine in yawed flow.

    • Time-accurate solution of RANS/Vortex Model.

PCS-U is capable of handling ‘dynamic stall’ and/or ‘blunt trailing edge airfoils’ through a fully unsteady solution methodology.

Research Proposal 2008

Extension of Lifting-Line (LL) to Lifting-Surface (LS) - PCS

Useful extension of steady PCS.

‘Quasi-Steady’ PCS - PCS-Q

1st Step towards fully unsteady PCS, yet limited in capability.

‘Unsteady’ PCS - PCS-U

Time-accurate extension of PCS-Q.

PCS-Q/PCS-U require extended implementation/validation time. Detailed model specifications are to be discussed.
