  • New developments have been made to CERC’s ADMS model that is used worldwide for modelling the dispersion of atmospheric pollutants for regulatory purposes. In these new developments, the fully-expanded turbine wake is characterised as a thin volume source, with source strength and dimensions calculated to give a maximum wind speed deficit 2aU. Here a is the Axial Induction Factor calculated either from an iterative solution of Blade Element Momentum (BEM) theory, or, from the input values of… CONTINUE READING
