is working on the development of a numerical tool for unsteady wind farm simulations. This tool is based on Large-Eddy simulation coupled to Actuator Disk approaches for modelling the wind turbines. The disk models are here improved with realistic controllers, allowing the rotors tor react to wind variations. This tool will offer a convenient framework for studying and elaborating control strategies to decrease problems linked to a grouping of rotors in a large wind farm, problems mainly due the wind turbine wake and its interactions with generators and wakes lying downstream, leading to a decrease in power production and to higher-than-predicted failure rates for some machines. Maud Moens is funded by grants from ENGIE and FRIA.
