Abstract

The power performance of a wind turbine in complex terrain is studied by means of large eddy simulations (LESs). The simulations show that the turbine performance is significantly different compared to what should be expected from the available wind. The reason for this deviation is that the undisturbed flow field behind the turbine is non-homogeneous and therefore results in a very different wake development and induction than seen for a turbine in flat homogeneous terrain.
