Summary on Grant Application Form
The SWEPT2 project aims to develop a sophisticated tool for modelling wind turbine wakes and wake interactions in the

context of large wind parks, primarily offshore. Such models are essential for improved wind farm designs with improved

energy yields. The Imperial College contribution is to improve the understanding of the flow physics associated with large

scale rotor wakes interacting with the turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer and with downstream rotors. This is

aimed at improving the turbulence modelling in the CFD calculations of flow through the whole wind park array of HAWTs.

Comparisons with experimental measurements at laboratory scale and at full scale to help validation are intended.
