Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of the 1.2MW Wind Turbine Flow-Field
  Abstract

Based on SIMPLE algorithm, with the control equation in finite volume method and the SST K- φturbulence model, 3D models of the 1.2MW wind turbine are built to analyze the relationship between the output power and the pressure, velocity and turbulent kinetic energy of its different sections. The results show that: The change of aerodynamic performance which is caused by the interaction of blades and tower , reduces the available torque of the wind turbine that caused the decreases of the output power. The flow field region affected by central swirl and adhesive vortex is very small. The region of velocity field was affected by the wheel and wind turbine, even a few hundred meters away, but the region affected by wind turbine was smaller than by the wheel.
