Fluid Mechanics of Wind Farms: 
Modelling and Control

Abstract:

Global wind power generation is expected to grow substantially over the coming decades and play a key role in mitigating climate change and achieving energy sustainability. One of the main challenges in optimizing the design, operation and control of wind farms is the prediction of their performance, owing to the complex multiscale interactions between wind farms and the turbulent atmospheric boundary layer (ABL).


Particularly important is the effect of ABL turbulence on wind-turbine wake flows, as they are responsible for substantial turbine power losses and fatigue loads in wind farms.

This presentation will focus on recent experimental and computational research efforts aiming at improving the prediction of wind turbine wake flows and guiding the development of wind-farm wake mitigation strategies such as active yaw control.
