 Abstract
Atmospheric icing may have significant effects not only on safety of aircraft in air, but also on performance of wind turbine and power networks on ground. Thus, ice protection measure should be developed to protect these systems from icing hazards. A very efficient method is the electro-thermal de-icing based on a process by which ice accretion is melted and blown away through aerodynamic forces. In this computational study, a state-of-the-art icing code, FENSAP-ICE, was used for the analysis of electro thermal de-icing system. Computational results including detailed conjugate heat transfer analysis were then validated with experimental data. Further, the computational model was applied to the DU21 airfoil section of NREL 5MW wind turbine with calculated heater parameters.
