Abstract :

This article presents the results of an analysis simulations of the aerodynamic parameters of an electric sedan vehicle fitted with wind turbines. The model consists of an electric sedan vehicle on which are mounted two SAVONIUS horizontal axis turbines, with four gear systems and four generators needed to convert the maximum energy of the wind blown by the displacement of the vehicle of the wind into electrical energy. The whole consists of a single vehicle and two wind turbine models designed by the SOLIDWORKS 2014 software. The analysis of the digital fluid dynamics was performed by using the turbulence model k-ɛ implemented in SOLIDWORKS FLOW SIMULATION module.
