Abstract

This paper presents the results of a field campaign investigating the performance of wake steering applied at a section of a commercial wind farm. It is the second phase of the study in which the first phase was reported in 'Initial results from a field campaign of wake steering applied at a commercial wind farm - Part 1'. The authors implemented wake steering on two turbine pairs, and compared results with the latest FLORIS (FLOw Redirection and Induction in Steady State) model of wake steering, showing good agreement in overall energy increase. Further, although not the original intention of the study, we also used results to detect the secondary steering phenomena. Results show an overall reduction in wake losses of approximately 6.6% for the regions of operation, which corresponds to achieving roughly half of the static optimal result.
