Short summary
Recently, the concept of intentional derating of single wind turbines in order to increase the energy yield of a wind farm has been studied intensively. Although the potential seems promising, the effects of atmospheric conditions need to be understood in greater detail. This study shows a strong influence of vertical velocity gradients on the power output of two model wind turbines, whereas the upstream turbine is derated by an intentional misalignment of the rotor and the inflow.
