Short summary
This study presents a measurement campaign, which consists of two nacelle-mounted lidar systems in a densely packed onshore wind farm. The aim of the campaign is to validate and improve wake models for load and power estimations in wind farms. Based on the findings from the measurements, the formulation of the wake degradation in the dynamic wake meandering model has been adjusted, so that the recalibrated model coincides very well with the measurements and thereby reduces the uncertainties.
