Abstract

As a part of the new energy development trend, distributed power generation may fully utilize a variety of decentralized energy sources. Buildings close to the installation location, besides, may have a considerable impact on the wind turbines’ operation. Using a combined vertical axis wind turbine with an S-shaped lift outer blade and Φ-shaped drag inner blade, this paper investigates how a novel type of upstream wall interacts with the incident wind at various speeds, the influence region of the turbulent vortex, and performance variation. The results demonstrate that the building’s turbulence affects the wind’s horizontal and vertical direction, as well as its speed, in downstream places. The wall’s effect on wind speed changing in the downstream area is thoroughly investigated. It turns out that while choosing an installation location, disturbing flow areas or low disturbing flow zones should be avoided to have the least impact on wind turbine performance.
