Large Eddy Simulation of Wind Farms

To predict the power produced by a wind farm, one must at least know the velocity of the air flowing through the farm. The wind velocity can be measured using meteorological masts with devices that can assess wind speed and direction a given point or even over a limited area. However, this data is not enough to study complex flow phenomena like gusts, kinetic energy transport, and the effect of the wind farm on local weather. This article explains the challenges involved in complementing experimental data with that from simulations.
