Comparison of Wake Models with Data for Offshore Windfarms
MetadataShow full item record
A major objective of the ENDOW project is to evaluate the performance of wake models in offshore windfarm environments in order to ascertain the improvements required to enhance the prediction of power output within large offshore wind farms . The strategy for achieving this is to compare the performance of the models in a wide range of conditions which are expected to be encountered during turbine operation offshore. Six models of varying complexity have been evaluated initially against the Vindeby single wake data in  where it was found that almost all of them overestimate the wake effects and also significant inconsistencies between the model predictions appeared in the near wake and turbulence intensity results. Based on the conclusions of that study, the ENDOW wake modeling groups have already implemented a number of modifications to their original models. In the present paper, new single wake results are presented against experimental data at Vindeby and Bockstigen wind farms. Clearly, some of the model discrepancies previously observed in Vindeby cases have been smoothed and overall the performance is improved. 1.
