High-fidelity analysis of wind plant and wind turbine fluid physics and structural response using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and FAST.
by Matt Churchfield and Sang Lee
SOWFA (Simulator fOr Wind Farm Applications) is a set of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solvers, boundary conditions, and turbine models based on the OpenFOAM CFD toolbox. It includes a version of the turbine model coupled with FAST. This tool allows users to investigate wind turbine and wind plant performance under the full range of atmospheric conditions and in terrain.The Package Includes:
