Wind Turbines: It's a Group Effort

Often hundreds of rotors can be installed in a typical wind farm. A little known fact, however, is that the shadowing caused by the wind turbine rotors impacts the performance of neighboring turbines and reduces their lifespan. As part of an EU project, researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are studying these interactions in a wind tunnel and developing a computer model that will help improve the efficiency of wind farms.
