Abstract

The wake of the 2MW NM80 wind turbine subject to non-uniform and laminar inflow conditions is simulated using CFD with a fully resolved rotor geometry, an actuator line method and actuator disc method, respectively and in all simulations the wake properties are compared. Based on the comparison the strengths and limitations of the models are pointed out.
