The
energy crisis encourages the development of renewable energy; one of the
potential renewable energy is wind. In the field of wind turbine there is a
two-way development of the utilization of wind energy, first by making a large
wind turbine, the second by making a wind farm energy with a relatively small
wind turbine.This hybrid VAWT wind turbine (Sultan Wind Turbine) is designed to
work optimally on a farm array, on a wind turbine farm array will always cause
a wake effect that will reduce overall wind turbine and farm array performance,
an investigation with a CFD simulation is required to predict how far the wake
effect will be before farm array build.The use of simulation software has been
widely used to predict the effects of this wake, and experiments in the
laboratory have also been done to predict the effects of a wake as well.This study'spurpose
is to predict the distance area of the recovery wake behind the wind turbine,
this distance which will be the reference distance between wind turbine units
and determining the density of the turbine in a farm. Simulation using
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), with a method of Multi Frame Reference
(MRF). Analysis using descriptive and inferential method in statistics such as
mean, Kolmogorov-Smirnov Z and KruskalWalis test.From the analysis of
simulation results and data processing descriptively and analytic statistic, it
can be concluded from the data given, the distance of x/D=4, wind speed has
recovery to the value near the input speed and no significant change to x/D= 9.
Then it can be concluded that the distance between two wind turbines that can
be used is a distance of 3.6 meters.These data suggest that the hybrid farm
array VAWT savonius and darrieus have a higher power density compared to HAWT.
From this power density calculation the hybrid VAWT has a greater electrical
potential up to 300 percent compared to the HAWT farm array.
