Short summary
We have performed computer simulations of turbulent air over hills with wind turbines located on the hill tops. Behind the wind turbines the wind speed is reduced and the air is even more turbulent. Together we call these features for the wind turbine wake. We find that the wake has a self-similar shape. This means that its shape is only a function of the reduced wind speed found in the wake and the width of the wake and hence not of the complexity and shape of the hills.
