Abstract

Energy resources in our modern world are fast depleting. More energy consumption is required for daily uses. As fossil energy are quickly drained every day without concern from user, a preferable energy that should be cheap and originate from an unending or infinite sources will come in mind. Hence, a renewable energy is much required at the moment. Thus researching a renewable energy which could be harvested is essential. The purpose of this study is to produce the MVP model of Proton Exora in 3D CAD to simulate an airflow of a model and to calculate the potential of wind energy generated by a certain speed. To complement this approach, the MVP model of Proton Exora were produce. The model were then imported to Hypermesh for meshing process. The meshing model were then imported into Virtual Wind Tunnel for analysis section. Analyses were done by simulating the model into three different velocities i.e. 80 km/h, 100 km/h and 120 km/h. Simulation computed the velocity field of flow around the model. The wind speed dispersed based on the velocity evaluation location were then used to calculate the potential energy harvested which is wind power. It proves that the increment of vehicle speed increase affect the wind speed generated and the potential energy can be calculated.
