Abstract

We use the recently introduced coupled wake boundary layer (CWBL) model to predict the e ect of turbulence intensity on the performance of a wind farm. The CWBL model combines a standard wake model with a \top-down" approach to get improved predictions for the power output compared to a stand-alone wake model. Here we compare the CWBL model results for di erent turbulence intensities with the Horns Rev eld measurements by Hansen et al., Wind Energy 15, 183196 (2012). We show that the main trends as function of the turbulence intensity are captured very well by the model and discuss di erences between the eld measurements and model results based on comparisons with LES results from Wu and Port e-Agel, Renewable Energy 75, 945-955 (2015).
