Offshore wind farms suffer substantial energy losses due to the interference of wind turbine wakes, with estimates indicating losses of approximately 10%. This thesis aims to advance the state of the art of wind farm flow control techniques for maximizing wind farm power performance. Wind farm flow control can be divided into three categories:...

The placement of wind turbines in wind farms is economically beneficial to the industry. Consequently, the wake generated by the upstream turbines introduces interactions with downstream turbines that significantly affect power generation. However, it is common practice to control the individual turbines to operate at their optimal settings and...

In this work, we find a reduced-order model for the wake of a wind turbine controlled with dynamic induction control. We use a physics-informed dynamic mode decomposition algorithm to reduce the model complexity in a way such that the physics of the wake mixing can be investigated and that the model itself can be easily embedded into control...

Wind farm controllers such as the Helix approach have shown potential in increasing plant power production through wake mixing. The concept suggests that actuating the upstream turbines' blade pitching with a specific periodic signal can induce a helix-shaped wake, thereby alleviating wind velocity deficit on downstream turbines. Wake mixing...

To accelerate the growth of offshore wind power, its Levelised Cost Of Energy (LCOE) must be reduced. A means of reducing the LCOE of offshore wind power is by mitigating the adverse wake effect by employing Wind Farm Control (WFC) for power maximization. A recent WFC technology is the helix approach, which uses Individual Pitch Control (IPC) to...

Wind farm flow control aims to improve wind turbine performance by reducing aerodynamic wake interaction between turbines. Dynamic, physics-based models of wind farm flows have been essential for exploring control strategies such as wake redirection and dynamic induction control. Free-vortex methods can provide a computationally efficient way...

In recent studies, the effectiveness of different so-called wake mixing strategies has been assessed in terms of wind farm power maximization. These studies show that by dynamically varying the pitch angles of a wind turbine, wake mixing can be enhanced to increase the overall power production of a wind farm. However, such strategies also...

The dissertation discusses different wind turbine control strategies that use pitch actuation to decrease the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of wind farms. This is achieved by either mitigating the loads experienced by individual turbines, or by enhancing wake mixing in turbines located within a wind farm. The latter strategy exploits the fact...

Wind farm control using dynamic concepts is a research topic that is receiving an increasing amount of interest. The main concept of this approach is that dynamic variations of the wind turbine control settings lead to higher wake turbulence, and subsequently faster wake recovery due to increased mixing. As a result, downstream turbines...

The wake flow of a horizontal axis wind turbine is characterised by lower wind speed and higher turbulence than the free-stream conditions. When clustered in large wind farms, wind turbines regularly operate inside the wake of one or more upstream machines. This is a major cause of energy production loss and a source of higher fatigue loads on...
