Abstract

A Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes code is used to simulate the interaction of two neighboring wind farms. The influence of the Coriolis force is investigated by modeling the atmospheric surface/boundary layer with three different methodologies. The results show that the Coriolis force is negligible for a single wind turbine, small for a single wind farm, but important for simulations of wind farm wake interaction.
