Semester Second Semester
Course Description (6 CFU) The course provides the necessary basic skills for the aerodynamic design and performance analysis of fluid machines in the frame of power production from renewable energy, focusing on wind and hydraulic turbines. Generalities on airfoils for fluid machines. Aerodynamic forces. Velocity triangles for rotating blades. Effect of incidence. Stall. Effect of Reynolds number. Effect of roughness. Three dimensional effects. Solidity. 1D and 3D approaches: Betz and Glauert models and relevant limits. Development of two 3D BEM (Blade Element Momentum) codes one for horizontal and obe for vertical axis wind turbines (Double Multiple Stream Tube), suitable for design, regulation and performance analysis. Most relevant models for BEM correction. Power from the waves and the Wells turbine for OWC: operating principle and preliminary design. (8 CFU) Hydraulic turbines for small hydro power application. Hydraulic similarity. Single and double regulating axial turbines, propeller-like and bulb turbine: operating curves at variable rpm. Hill charts. Preliminary design of an axial flow turbine.
