Abstract

Actuator line aerodynamics (AL) model is becoming increasingly popular for characterization of the flow field and the turbulent wakes created by the rotated turbines. AL model does not require boundary layer resolution and is thus significantly more efficient than the fully-resolved computations. Potential of this model to be applied to the simulation of really large wind plants creates the need of exploring its applicability and performance with highly-scalable computation codes. In this paper, we present the details of implementation and validation of the actuator line aerodynamics model in a high-order spectral-element code which is known to scale efficiently to hundreds of thousands of processors.
