  1. 1. Wind power wake modelling Development and application of an actuator disc method for industrial utilization

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nikolaos Simisiroglou; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wind power; Offshore wind farm; Wakes; Actuator Disc Method ACD ; Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD ; Reynolds Average Navier–Stokes RANS ; WindSim; PHOENICS;

    Abstract : As a wind turbine extracts energy from the wind it creates a region downstream where the wind velocity is decreased and the urbulence intensity is increased, this region is commonly called the wake region. Today’s wind farms include a large number of wind turbines position in tight layouts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Numerical computations of wind turbine wakes and wake interaction Optimization and control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Karl Nilsson; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Actuator disc method; Actuator line method; Blade element momentum method; Wind turbine wake; Wake interaction; CFD; LES; EllipSys3D;

    Abstract : In the present thesis the wake flow behind wind turbines is analyzed numerically using large-eddy simulations. The wind turbine rotors are modeled by using either the actuator disc method or the actuator line method in which the blades are represented by body forces computed with airfoil data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wind-turbine wake flows - Effects of boundary layers and periodic disturbances

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ylva Odemark; KTH.; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wind power; wind-turbine model; wind tunnel; porous disc; hot-wire anemometry; particle image velocimetry; blade element momentum method; large eddy simulations; actuator disc method;

    Abstract : The increased fatigue loads and decreased power output of a wind turbine placed in the wake of another turbine is a well-known problem when building new wind-power farms and a subject of intensive research. These problems are caused by the velocity gradients and high turbulence levels present in the wake of a turbine. READ MORE

    Abstract : Numerical simulations of the Navier-Stokes equations are performed to achieve a better understanding of the behaviour of wakes generated by wind turbines. The simulations are performed by combining the in-house developed computer code EllipSys3D with the actuator line and disc methodologies. READ MORE
