Abstract [en]

The wake recovery behind the Horns Rev wind farm is analysed to investigate the applicability of Large Eddy Simulations (LES) in combination with an actuator disc method (ACD) for farm to farm interaction studies. Periodic boundary conditions on the lateral boundaries are used to model the wind farm (as infinitely wide), using only two columns of turbines. The meteorological conditions of the site are taken into account by introducing wind shear and pre-generated synthetic turbulence to the simulation domain using body forces. Simulations are carried out to study the power production and the velocity deficit in the farm wake. The results are compared to the actual power production as well as to wind measurements at 2 km and 6 km behind the wind farm. The simulated power production inside the farm shows an overall good correlation with the real production, but is slightly overpredicted in the most downstream rows. The simulations overpredict the wake recovery, namely the wind velocity, at long distances behind the farm. Further studies are needed before the presented method can be applied for the simulation of long distance wakes. Suggested parameters to be studied are the development of the turbulence downstream in the domain and the impact of the grid resolution.

Abstract [en]

More and larger wind farms are planned offshore. As the most suitable sites to build are limited these new wind farms will be constructed near to each other in so called wind farm clusters. Behind the wind turbines in these farms there is a disrupted flow of air called a wake that is characterized by reduced wind speed and increased turbulence. These individual turbine wakes combine to form a farm wake that can travel long distances. In wind farm clusters farm to farm interaction will occur, i.e. the long distance wake from one wind farm will impact the wind conditions for other farms in the surrounding area.

This thesis contains numerical studies of these long distance wakes. In these studies Large Eddy Simulations (LES) using an Actuator Disc method (ACD) are used. A prescribed boundary layer is used where the wind shear is introduced using body forces. The turbulence, based on the Mann model, is introduced as fluctuating body forces upstream of the farm. A neutral atmosphere is assumed. The applied method has earlier been used for studies of wake effects inside farms but not for the longer distances needed for the study of farm to farm interaction. Parameter studies are setup to analyze how to best use the model for the study of long distance wakes with regards to 1) numerical and physical parameters in the model, 2) the extension of the domain and turbulence as well as the characteristics of the flow far downstream and 3) the downstream development of turbulence with different combinations of wind shear and turbulence level.

Using an initial simulation setup a wind farm was studied and preliminary results were obtained. These results were subsequently improved upon by applying the simulation setup adjustments indicated in the parameter studies. A comparison with a mesoscale model was also done. The mesoscale model was shown to be relevant for studies of long distance wakes in another study comparing LES and WRF. Finally an idealized farm to farm interaction case was studied with focus on the impact of including the Coriolis force in the simulations.

Combining LES with a mesoscale model is of interest to study further.
