Abstract

In this report, the investigation of the dependence of the loads on individual turbines in an offshore wind farm is reported. Three layouts of the wind farm are considered for a wide range of wind conditions, including wind direction. The relationships of loads to generated power and position of the wind turbine in the farm are explored. In addition, different farm level control algorithms to curtail the power output from the farm are compared to determine the strategy that maximises the reduction in turbine loads. The StrathFarm simulation tool has been used extensively in this work which has, also, enabled it to be
thoroughly tested. Even though a large number of simulation runs are conducted, it is clear that the stochastic nature of the wind field renders the results subject to a degree of uncertainty warranting further investigation.
