Abstract

The project has created a new basis for further development and optimization of WT’s designed for WF operation. This has been accomplished through developing of more realistic modelling of WF flow fields as well as of such fields interactions with WT’s under non-neutral ABL stability conditions. On this basis a verified model complex for prediction of structural loads as well as production losses for wind turbines operating in wind farm conditions, which takes into account the effects from ABL stability conditions, is established. Thereby the way to increased reliability and cost efficiency of future wind turbines as well as to more precise prediction of the WF power output is paved.
