CL-Windcon first Wind Tunnel Test campaigns

In June and October 2017 the CL-Windcon consortium has conducted the first two test campaigns in the wind tunnel. These testing aimed at characterizing in detail the interaction of multiple wakes shed by two/three wind turbine models provided by the Technical University of Munich. These tests have been conducted in the boundary layer test section of the Politecnico di Milano wind tunnel, where two different boundary layers have been simulated, one being representative of an on-shore condition, and the second of an off-shore one. In these tests out- and in-wake flow characterization have been performed allowing for different yaw misalignment angles and different turbine power set-points.
