An adaptive 3D force distribution model for calculating interactions and power production in an array of vertical axis water turbines

Abstract : A simplified steady state CFD model using force source terms is implemented in OpenFoam to model the power production and the flow in an array of vertical axis tidal turbines. The study explains how to interpolate the force distributions from a set of blade resolved simulations of a whole turbine, depending on the flow striking each turbine of the array.
