  • We describe a generalization of the Coupled Wake Boundary Layer (CWBL) model for wind-farms that can be used to evaluate the performance of wind-farms under arbitrary wind inflow directions whereas the original CWBL model (Stevens et al., J. Renewable and Sustainable Energy 7, 023115 (2015)) focused on aligned or staggered wind-farms. The generalized CWBL approach combines an analytical Jensen wake model with a "top-down" boundary layer model coupled through an iterative determination of the… CONTINUE READING
