This case shows the influence of the wind directions and terrain topology covered by widely-spaced trees on the wind velocity distributions and wake fields generated by on-line wind turbines located on the complex terrain of Valaam island of Ladoga lake in Nothern Russia.
The standart K-E model of turbulence is modified to take into account the plant- airflow interactions resulting in momentum sinks. The corresponding GROUND codings are made by way of PLANT option. The main details can be found in paper by S.Zhubrin et al."Practical evaluation of turbulence models applied to on-line wind turbines on a complex te r in", presented at International Seminar of AirFlows on Complex Terrain, University of Karlsruhe, February 1995.
