Although, only in recent years, northern European countries started to install large offshore wind farms, it is expected that by 2020, several dozens of far and large offshore wind farms (FLOWFs) will be built in the Baltic, Irish and North seas. These FLOWFs will be constituted of a considerable amount of wind turbines (WTs) packed together, leading to an energy density increase. However, due to shadowing effects between WTs, power production is reduced, resulting in a revenues decrease… CONTINUE READING
