A very thorough and comprehensive review of the current status of wind farm flow control. Some sections are perhaps a bit wordy, and there will always be scope to include a few more references. Just a very few small and specific comments:
Line 142-3: "While these types of precise implementation details can matter, e.g., for turbine loading" - these details can be more significant than this implies; the exact means by which a particular wake change is achieved can affect power output as well as loads.
Line 182: wake steering combined with overinductive induction control: this could further exacerbate loading; whereas the option to combine wake steering with 'normal' induction control (not necessarily simultaneously on a particular turbine but depending on turbine position and wind condition) should also me mentioned (and referenced) in this paragraph - it's one option for achieving a suitable compromise between energy production and loading.
Line 210: "resort under" - do you mean "result in", or something implying "be equivalent to"?
Line 444: typo "leveraged"
Line 950: "reliability of the facility"
