Numerical simulation of the wake of marine current turbines with a particle method

G Pinon, Paul M, G Germain, E Rivoalen- Renewable Energy, October 2012

► We developed a numerical software for the computation of marine current turbine. ► We used an unsteady Lagrangian implementation of the Navier-Stokes equations. ► Two different turbines are considered, one of them is taken from the literature[1]. ► Both power/thrust coefficients and wake are computed with the same numerical tool. ► All the numerical results are compared to experiments
