The effects of operational conditions on the resistance moment of a rotary energy recovery device have been systematically investigated through the computational fluid dynamics in this paper. Based on the structural characteristics of the rotary energy recovery device, the hydro-static bearing was established on both sides of the rotor. Simulation results indicate that for the rotation resistance moment generated by the rotor internal flow path, the rotation speed is linearly positive with the rotational resistance moment. For the rotation resistance moment generated by the clearance flow, the rotation speed is also positively correlated with the rotational resistance moment. The circular clearance size is negatively correlated with the rotation resistance moment, and the endcover fluid film size is negatively correlated with the rotation resistance moment. The boundary speed between laminar flow and turbulent flow was found by comparing the changing trend of rotational resistance moment. The obtained relation between clearance, the speed of the rotor and resistance moment provides a simple way to predict the resistance moment of the device, which will be beneficial to design the energy-efficient rotary energy recovery device
