Abstract

This study investigated the application of an axial flow wind turbine integrated with a condenser. The exhaust air from condenser was used to drive the wind turbine by a ducted turbine system. There were two parameters varied in this work: the blade number and the blade pitch angle. The blade number used was two blades, five blades, and ten blades, while the blade pitch angles were 5°, 10°, 15°, 20°, 30°, and 45°. The diameter of the wind turbine was 495 mm. The model of the condenser had a fan diameter of 600 mm and the range of the average air velocity of 2.01 m/s - 7.86 m/s. The maximum mechanical power was 10.72 W for air velocity of 7.86 m/s. The maximum power coefficient recorded was 0.38 for the tip speed ratio of 1.3 on the blade number of five blades and a pitch angle of 10°. The maximum exhaust air energy recovery was 13.64% of the power consumption of the condenser fan.
