      Hi,


       


      I am looking to model the cooling effect of a fan on a solar PV panel. Is this possible using the free student products? is there a guide I can follow that will give me a better idea as to how to do this? 


       


      Thank you in advance.

      Hello,


      Yes, you should be able to use the Student Product for this. Please use Ansys Fluent for your analysis. You should be able to find several YouTube videos that will help you get started.


      Please refer to information on the Fluent User and Theory guides. Here is a link on how to access these help guides.

      Hi Kremella,


       


      Thank you for your response. I cant seem to find Fluent in the student package (Discovery AIM). Is it under a different name e.g. thermal, fluid-solid heat transfer?


       


      Thank you in advance.

      It's not in AIM, you need the Student bundle.
