The vast majority of wind turbines are today erected in wind farms. As a consequence, wake generated loads are becoming more and more important. We present a new and successful experimental technique, based on remote sensing, to measure instantaneously the flow in the wake of wind turbines. Downstream wind speed can be quantified spatially in one and two dimensions. Data analysis allows us to identify the wake transversal position, thus enabling us to quantify the wake meandering as well as the instantaneous wake expansion expressed in a meandering frame of reference. The experimental results are subsequently used in a preliminary verification of the basic conjecture of a wake meandering model that essentially considers the wake as a passive tracer.
