Wells turbine is an important component in the oscillating water column (OWC) system. Thus, many researchers tend to improve the performance via experiment or computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation, which is cheaper. As the CFD method becomes more popular, the lack of evidence to support the parameters used during the CFD simulation becomes a big issue. This paper aims to review the CFD models applied to the Wells turbine for the OWC system. Journal papers from the past ten years were summarized in brief critique. As a summary, the FLUENT and CFX software are mostly used to simulate the Wells turbine flow problems while SST k-? turbulence model is the widely used model. A grid independence test is essential when doing CFD simulation. In conclusion, this review paper can show the research gap for CFD simulation and can reduce the time in selecting suitable parameters when involving simulation in the Wells turbine.
