DOE Analysis and Improvement of a Rotor Design for OWC Radial Impulse Turbines

Khalid Elatife, Abdelatif El Marjani

Abstract

Wave energy exploitation is of great interests nowadays due to its sustainability, reliability and large potential. A brief analyze of wave energy potential in the Moroccan coastline with an idea on the importance of implementing WEC, and presents secondly an implementation of the experimental design method to optimize the self-rectifying impulse radial turbine in the OWC devices, which is the most exploited system, for wave energy extraction are presented in this paper. A novel design with circular arcs and straight lines for the rotor blade will be presented. A first work of optimizing the rotor blade design in terms of the turbine efficiency by the design of experiment method has been done. The work has done as outputs two optimal rotor blade profiles, one for the exhalation and the other for the inhalation modes. As a second part of the work, optimizing the solidities of the guide vanes and of the rotor by implementing a second design of experiment will be established.
