An Experimental Facility For Wind Farm Control Testing

  • Scaled wind farm model in large boundary layer wind tunnel
  • Sophisticated wind turbine models with active control and aeroelastic scaling, with reasonable representation of performance and loads
  • Applications: research in wind farm control, wakes, aeroelasticity and loads in wake interference conditions
  • Benefits: fast testing time, low cost, control over testing conditions, accurate measurement of relavant parameters
  • Flexible scenarios: different wind farm configurations, wind conditions, controller algorithms and strategies
