  • A theory of the atmospheric disturbance caused by a large wind farm is developed using a simple boundary layer (BL) representation. The model includes pressure gradients and gravity wave generation associated with a temperature inversion at the top of the BL and the normal tropospheric lapse rate aloft. The pattern of wind disturbance is computed using a Fast Fourier Transform. The slowing of the winds by turbine drag and the resulting loss of wind farm efficiency is controlled by two factors… CONTINUE READING
