  1. 1. 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

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish The problem of fluid-structure interaction, occurring in many industrial and engineering applications, are of great importance, since interaction of a flow and a structure in it can lead to serious damages of the structure. The fluid-structure interaction gives rise to a variety of different physical phenomena such as flow-induced vibration, noise generation, etc. READ MORE

  3. 3. Numerical study on instability and interaction of wind turbine wakes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sasan Sarmast; KTH.; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wind turbine wakes; Stability; interaction; POD; DMD; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

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