The wakes (volumes of slower and turbulent wind) behind the turbines in a wind farm result in production losses for the downstream turbines by up to 20%. This effect can be mitigated using an active yaw control, by deflecting the wake propagation away from the other turbines, hence increasing the total production.
Develop an active yaw control algorithm for the entire wind farm that can:
The method will be developed and evaluated using Fast.FARM
