Momentum balance in a fully developed boundary layer over a staggered array of NREL 5MW rotors

Abstract:

3D Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations of a fully developed wind farm boundary layer over a staggered array of NREL 5MW turbines are presented. The turbine is modeled as an actuator disk and as a fully resolved rotor to compare the effect of the turbine model on the wind farm aerodynamics, in particular the streamwise momentum balance across the farm. Results show that the difference in the turbine model affects the average wind speed through the farm as well as the local flow ...
