Measurements behind model wind turbines: Further evidence of wake meandering
2008 (English)In: Wind Energy, ISSN 1095-4244, E-ISSN 1099-1824, Vol. 11, no 2, 211-217 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The frequency of wind turbine wake meandering was studied using wind turbine models with one, two and three blades. The one-bladed turbine did not give rise to any meandering motion, whereas meandering was observed for both the two- and three-bladed turbines at high enough rotational speeds. It was shown that both the thrust of the turbine and the tip-speed ratio influence the meandering.
