Parametric design analysis of elliptical shroud profile

  • Received: 18 August 2021 Accepted: 08 November 2021 Published: 18 November 2021
  • Parametric design analysis for Eccentric Rotated Ellipsoid (ERE) shroud profile is conducted whereas the design model is validated experimentally. A relation between shroud inlet, length and exit diameter is established, different ratios related to the wind turbine diameter are introduced, and solution for different ERE family curves that passes on the inlet, throat, and exit points is studied. The performance of the ERE shroud is studied under different wind velocities ranging from 5–10 m/s.

    The method used in creating the shroud profile is by solving the ERE curve equations to generate large family of solutions. The system is modeled as axisymmetric system utilizing commercial software package. The effect of the parameters; shroud length, exit diameter, inlet diameter, turbine position with respect to the shroud throat, and wind velocity are studied. An optimum case for each shroud length, exit diameter and location of the shroud with respect to the wind turbine throat axis are achieved.

    The simulation results show an increase in the average wind velocity by 1.63 times of the inlet velocity. This leads to a great improvement in the wind turbine output power by 4.3 times of bare turbine. One of the achieved optimum solutions for the shroud curves has been prototyped for experimental validation. The prototype has been manufactured using 3D printing technology which provides high accuracy in building the exact shape of shroud design curve. The results show very good agreement with the experimental results.
