Review of computational fluid dynamics for wind turbine wake aerodynamics

Review of computational fluid dynamics for wind turbine wake aerodynamics ABSTRACT This article reviews the state‐of‐the‐art numerical calculation of wind turbine wake aerodynamics. Different computational fluid dynamics techniques for modeling the rotor and the wake are discussed. Regarding rotor modeling, recent advances in the generalized actuator approach and the direct model are discussed, as far as it attributes to the wake description. For the wake, the focus is on the different turbulence models that are employed to study wake effects on downstream turbines. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Wind Energy Wiley

Abstract

ABSTRACT This article reviews the state‐of‐the‐art numerical calculation of wind turbine wake aerodynamics. Different computational fluid dynamics techniques for modeling the rotor and the wake are discussed. Regarding rotor modeling, recent advances in the generalized actuator approach and the direct model are discussed, as far as it attributes to the wake description. For the wake, the focus is on the different turbulence models that are employed to study wake effects on downstream turbines.
