Short summary
As wind turbines extract energy from the wind, a wind field of reduced wind speed and increased turbulence is left behind for the downstream turbines. For the exact calculation of the annual energy production and lifetime of wind turbines, it is therefore of great importance to be able to accurately calculate this turbulent wake flow for different wind conditions. This paper compares different computational modeling approaches with flow measurements on model turbines in a wind tunnel.
