Short summary
This paper describes an LES approach for the simulation of wind turbines and their wakes. The simulation model is used to develop a complete digital copy of experiments performed with scaled wind turbines in a boundary layer wind tunnel, including the passive generation of a sheared turbulent flow. Numerical results are compared with experimental measurements, with a good overall matching between the two.
