Hi all,

I met a problem about wake effect simulation, theoretically, the velocith of wind in wind turbine wake is smaller than ambient environment. but in my case, the velocity in wake is bigger then ambient environment. Dose someone met the same problem? I use sliding mesh to simulate the wind turbine rotation, and velocity inlet and pressure outlet for boundary condition. hope someone can help me sort it out.
