Newswise: Supporting Structures of Wind Turbines Contribute to Wind Farm Blockage Effect

Supporting Structures of Wind Turbines Contribute to Wind Farm Blockage Effect

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Much about the aerodynamic effects of larger wind farms remains poorly understood. New work in this week’s Journal of Renewable and Sustainably Energy looks to provide more insight in how the structures necessary for wind farms affect air flow. Using a two-scale coupled momentum balance method, researchers theoretically and computationally reconstructed conditions that large wind farms might face in the future, including the dampening effect that comes with spacing turbines close to one another.
