Short summary
This work provides a possible solution to closed-loop flow control in a wind farm. The remote sensing technology, lidar, which is a laser-based measurement system, is used to obtain wind speed information behind a wind turbine. The measurements are processed using a model-based approach to estimate position information of the wake. The information is then used in a controller to redirect the wake to the desired position. Altogether, the concept aims to increase the power output of a wind farm.
