Design and Calculation of Coefficient of Lift and Drag for Helix Wind Turbine using Solidworks and Ansys Fluent

Aditya Kumar, Dr. J.P. Mani


This paper is about the Helix Wind Turbine which focusses on its design and calculation of its coefficient of lift and drag. The Helix Wind Turbine is designed in the Solidworks 2014 with NACA airfoil. The aerodynamics characteristics like coefficient of lift and drag is calculated in Ansys Fluent 15.0. The overall objective of this paper is to select the best NACA airfoil out of the airfoils over which analysis is performed. The paper also discusses about the certain design parameters.
