Wind turbines rotation was motivated by the force of wind. In reality, wind doesn’t moving vertically to the wind turbine rotation plane, but in random directions instead. Therefore, the yawed effect has to be taken into consideration when study wind turbine aerodynamic performance. The purpose of this study is to compare the difference between the wind turbine near wake flow with yawed effect and without yawed effect aerodynamically. The research uses CFD technology to simulate the rotation movement and air flow pattern, which is completed in software Ansys Workbench.
