How to generate a turbulent inflow for wind turbine at inlet

I am right now doing a project about Wind Turbine (WT). As we konw the wind turbine is usually located in the region where the wind is strong fluctuated (turbulence).
Therefore, I need to simulate this phenomen which i should generate a turbulent inflow (without the boundary layer, that will be much more complicated) at inlet boundary.
Anyone knows how to generate the turbulent inflow?
Thanks a lot

question is how you want to model it, are you considering to model a wind farm or optimize a single wind turbine... the aproach is quite different as surely you must realize...
in my view if its a wind farm you're trying to model, calculating turbulence for the inlet makes little sense you might as well use the 10% intensity if the speed is quite high
if its a single wind turbine optimization ( or blade optimization), decide which turbulence model you will/have to use and look in the manual/textbooks how to calculate the coefficients.
Top 4 tips
1. Knowledge is everything and Ignorance is dangerous.
2. Understand your limitations and try to eliminate them.
3. Get yerself a bike and hoon the chuffer. You will soon learn why dogs like to hang their heads out the car window.
4. Please before asking any questions on how to run simulations in CFX, go though all the tutorials
