  1. 11. Numerical computations of wind turbine wakes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Stefan S. A. Ivanell; KTH.; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Actuator Line Model; Actuator Disc Model; Wind Turbine Wake; CFD; LES; EllipSys3D; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik;

    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

  2. 12. Numerical study on instability and interaction of wind turbine wakes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sasan Sarmast; KTH.; [2013]
