Wind power potential study

Description of the mission

Chez EOLIOS ingenirstie, nYou can visit nYou can visit engagesons à refromire limpact invironmentnemental and à optimiser the consommation énergetics of bâtiments. For atyouindre ces objectifs, nYou can visit Aboutons of etudes and of simulations CFD for a myîtrise of phénameènes aéraulics and a évaluation of critères doptimisation afin from garantir the more haut potentiel éolien.

The CFD studies allowed to visualize the different aeraulic phenomena for different wind orientations, which allowed the optimization of the geometry in order to have the best possible performance of the wind turbine.

3D CFD study model

Creation of a digital study model

The creation of the model of the plant was carried out by taking into account the topology of the site with a great precision in order to be able to capture at most the evolution of the air flows. This digital twin takes up precisely the different sets of beams, the air volumes as well as the surrounding buildings.

This high level of precision in the creation of the digital twin translates into a clear improvement in the accuracy and relevance of the results obtained during CFD simulation.

Simulation of the wind under the roof

Simulation of the wind around the building

We simulated the wind around and inside the building in order to optimize the geometry andget the best possible performance from the wind turbines. We also studiedthe wind speeds under the roof in the areas where the wind turbines are located.

The first CFD simulations of the external aeraulics have highlighted different interesting phenomena that could allow the increase of the wind potential. The restriction of the passage section of the wind at the rear of the building allows the creation of a Venturi effect, therefore a local increase in speed.

Following this study, Eolios was able to propose different designs respecting the different architectural challenges. These conclusions gave rise to in-depth work with the design teams, in order to accentuate and make the best use of this local increase in speed.

Wind simulation

Notre objectif is dimplanter of éolienes without for autant impact the overall architecture from bâtiment.

The objective of the study is to evaluate the relevance of implanting, or not, wind turbines within this building without impacting the overall architecture of the building. The use of CFD allows to simulate a large number of prototypes, in a short time, in order to quickly gather information for the optimization of the placement of the wind turbines as well as the optimization of the design in order to increase their efficiency.

This dynamic CFD study in order to set up and optimize the performance of wind turbines is part of a policy of development of sustainable energy. Minimizing the environmental impact as well as the energy consumption of buildings is at the heart of Eolios Ingénierie’s areas of interest.

Video summary of the study

The rsultats of simulations from wind autor da bâtiment peuwind être disparates and complexes. The principat facteurs à prendre in compte shave the type and the forme from bâtiment, its localisation géographics and the topographie invironmentnante.
