    The turbulence in the interior of an idealised wind farm is simulated using Large Eddy Simulation and the Actuator Line technique implemented in the Navier-Stokes equations. The simulation is carried out for an ’infinitely’ long row of turbines simulated by applying cyclic boundary conditions at the inlet and outlet. The simulations investigate the turbulence inherent to the wind turbines as no ambient turbulence or shear is added to this idealised case. AReduced Order Model for the highly turbulent flow deep inside a wind farm is proposed based on a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition. The reconstructed flow is shown to capture the large scale motions of the highly turbulent flow.
