The objective is to verify the generator room temperature till the height of generators are within the permissible temperature rise of less than 10oC or not for proper functioning of generators.
To verify whether the equal flow rate from each of the four intake openings are obtained or not.
The fluid flow (movement of air) considered to be Incompressible in the CFD model since there is no significant variation in the fluid density with respect to time within a fluid parcel when it is in motion. To build a mathematical representation of a 3D model and numerically solve the 3D Navier-stokes equations over a discretized flow field, the Ansys Fluent CFD software is used. In this work the k-ω SST turbulence model is used for simulating the turbulence behavior of the flow.
The velocity profiles in the generator room is properly distributed and the temperature till the height of generators in most of the regions are within the permissible temperature rise of 10 oC and the ventilation system is sufficient to maintain the design temperature conditions for the provided heat loads of generators.
