Frozen Rotor and Wake of a Wind Turbine
 
Hi everyone,

i have done a 3D-Simulation of a wind turbine using the "Frozen Rotor" interface model. Because of some problems in the wake i was wondering if the "Frozen Rotor" model is capable to calculate the wake behaviour correctly.

(Frozen-Rotor-Interfaces of the rotating systems are about 3m before and 6m behind the rotorplane)

Any experiences on that ?

Thanks in advance for any help.
