Abstract

Understanding the wake behavior properly would help in designing proper layouts of wind farms to obtain maximum power and improved turbine life. This research aims at studying the impact of power of a turbine that is in the wake of another turbine under uniform inflow condition. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations are carried out to represent the velocity deficit behind two turbines in-line with the wind using the Virtual Blade Model (VBM). Power loss of the second wind turbine located at different distance downstream is also calculated.
