Experimental analysis of the wake dynamics of a modelled wind turbine during yaw manoeuvres

Abstract : This work focuses on the dynamic analysis of a modelled wind turbine wake during yaw manoeuvres. Indeed, in the context of wind farm control, misalignment of wind turbines is envisaged as a solution to reduce wind turbine wake interactions, by skewing the wake trajectory. To optimize the control strategies, the aerodynamic response of the wake to this type of yaw manoeuvres, as well as the global load response of the rotor disc of the downstream wind turbine, must be quantified. As a first approach, the identification of the overall system is performed through wind tunnel experiments, using a rotor model based on the actuator disc concept. A misalignment scenario of the upstream wind turbine model is imposed and the wind turbine wake deflection is dynamically captured and measured by the use of Particle Imaging Velocimetry.
