How turbulence can impact power performance
North American Windpower, September 2012— Atmospheric turbulence is the set of seemingly random and continuously changing air motions that are superimposed on the wind’s average motion. Atmospheric turbulence impacts wind energy in several ways, specifically through power performance effects, impacts on turbine loads, fatigue and wake effects, and noise propagation. As an example, consider water flow: Steady flow is a river flowing downstream, while turbulent flow consists of the irregular swirls, or fluctuations, embedded in the steady flow. Turbulent fluctuations . . . Complete article »
