- The whole interplanetary space is full of solar wind, which is a charged high-velocity flux of particles ejected during coronal expansion. In consideration that solar wind is fluid, and it will be obstructed to generate turbulence when it is dispersed, k-ε turbulence models are selected by ANSYS FLUNT in this paper to simulate solar wind as it flows through a satellite, and the simulation results are analyzed, in order to better explore the impacts of solar wind upon the earth's satellites and promptly avoid the damages of solar wind to the satellites. The simulation results have certain practical significance for guiding surveys about impacts of solar wind upon the earth's satellites.
