This work develops a wind intensity interference coefficient which captures the interference caused by an upwind turbine on a downwind turbine in the same wind flow. This coefficient includes the use of a Weibull distribution to handle variability in the wind velocity, and also accounts for the geometric relationship between the turbines and the boundaries of the wind sector. This interference coefficient then forms part of a mixed integer linear program (MILP) which is used to optimise the… CONTINUE READING
