I am using FLORIS to make an estimation of the AEP produced by different wind farms, with different wind climates, turbines and layouts.
I get significantly different results ( % of AEP loss due to wake) with Jensen and Gauss_legacy velocity models.
I’d like to know which velocity deficit model do you recommend, without making any parameter adjustmend, using the default parameters, to predict AEP losses due to wake?
I have read in nrel.gov/docs/fy19osti/72767.pdf that Gauss_legacy velocity deficit model provides better representation of wake characteristics. However, I have also read from some authours, from DONG Energy Wind Power, who prefer to use the Jensen model to predict AEP and power losses. Moreover, in reference , it is stated that Jensen model provides better estimation of AEP and wake losses for Horns Rev offshore wind farm.
Any recomendation or advice would be very helpful.
Many thanks in advance,
