...-based type. The disadvantage of a Savonius rotor is its low efficiency due to the generation of negative torque on the returning blade. To reduce the negative torque, the performance parameters of a Savonius rotor need to be optimized. The shear-stress transport variant of k–ω turbulence model is used...

... depth of s/d = 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, and 1 are tested under different free-wind speeds of 3, 5, and 7 m/s and tip speed ratios (TSRs) in the range from 0.2 to 1.2. It is found that the profile of blades in a Savonius rotor plays a considerable role in power characteristics. Also, regardless of blades profile...

... potential to extract wind energy and can be operated as a standalone system at remote areas where the conventional electricity cannot be provided. The present study primarily focuses on the performance evaluation of a conventional semicircular-bladed Savonius rotor with capped vents (CVs) or nozzle...
