Publication - Power curve and wake analyses of the Vestas multi-rotor demonstrator

Tuesday 11 Jun 19
In April 2016, Vestas built a multi-rotor wind turbine demonstrator at the Campus of DTU Wind Energy. A new paper investigates the power performance and wake recovery of the multi-rotor using both field measurements and numerical simulations.

Compared to an equivalent single-rotor wind turbine, the multi-rotor is found to have faster wake recovery and lower far-wake turbulence and therefore the potential to reduce the wind turbine spacing within wind farms while providing the same production output.
