    Ten simulations of large wind farms have been performed using a fully coupled LES and aero-elastic framework to form a database of full turbine operational conditions in terms of both production and loads. The performance is examined in terms of averaged power production and thrust, as well as 10min equivalent flapwise bending, yaw, and tilt moment loads. Certain scenarios operating below rated wind speed shows unexpected peaks in the loads. The influence on the operating conditions are examined for various parameters and compared relative to an effective power production per area.
