In a wind farm, power losses due to wind turbine wake effects can be up to 30-40% under
certain conditions. As the global installed wind power capacity increases, the mitigation
of wake effects in wind farms is gaining more importance. Following a conventional
control strategy, each individual turbine maximizes its own power production without
taking into consideration its effects on the performance of downstream turbines.
Therefore, this control scheme results in operation conditions that yield suboptimal power
In order to increase the overall wind farm power production, a cooperative control
strategy can be used, which coord...
