Abstract

Actuator line aerodynamics (AL) model is becoming increasingly popular for characterization of the flow field and the turbulent wake created by the rotating turbines. AL model does not require boundary layer resolution of the flow around turbine blades and is thus significantly more efficient than the fully-resolved computations. The current paper aims at performing spectral element simulations of AL model wind turbine response to a realistic neutral atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) flow field. In the present paper, we incorporate the benchmark results of neutral ABL simulations using a rough wall LES model at very high Reynolds number and results of wind turbine response to ABL flows using AL model.
