Computational Study of a Small Scale Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) : Comparative Performance of Various Turbulence Models
The paper presents a numerical approach to study of fluid flow characteristics and to predict performance of wind turbines. The numerical model is based on Finite-volume method (FVM) discretization of unsteady Reynolds-averaged ...
Self-Powered Dynamic Systems
This article concerns the concept of energy harvesting associated with dynamic systems. The particular area of work is the concept of fully or partially self-powered dynamic systems requiring zero or reduced external energy ...
Numerical simulation of combined mixing and separating flow in channel filled with porous media
Various flow bifurcations are investigated for two dimensional combined mixing and separating geometry. These consist of two reversed channel flows interacting through a gap in the common separating wall filled with porous ...
Energy harvesting from suspension system using regenerative force actuators
In this paper harvesting vibration energy from suspension is investigated. Theoretical values for the harvested energy are calculated. Experimental evaluation of the energy is performed using vehicle road simulation ...
On Power and Control Systems of the Multibody Advanced Airship for Transport
The concept of the Multibody Advanced Airship for Transport (MAAT) is presented. The power, propulsion and control systems of the airship are discussed. The energy required for operation of this airship is supplied by a ...
