This paper presents numerical results of a one-bladed vertical axis wind turbine using the k-ε RNG turbulence model. The rotor geometry was developed based on the research report available on the literature. The obtained results of aerodynamic blade loads and wake profiles downstream behind the rotor are in a good agreement with the experiment. This paper presents also the ability of calculating fluid flow parameters around the operating wind turbine by using the original approach – the actuator cell model (ACM).
