JensenAngle

0th

Percentile

For a given distance x, computes the wake cone generated by a turbine.

In Jensen's wake model, a wake cone is generated by a turbine based on the turbine's hub height z, its rotor radius r_0, the terrain's roughness length z_0 and the distance x between the turbine under investigation and a certain second point. z, r_0 and z_0 are taken from the FarmVars settings object, while x is to be provided.

Usage
JensenAngle(x)
Arguments
x

must be a single value. Provide distance in meters.

Details

If a second turbine (B) is in a first turbine (A)'s wake, turbine B's power output must be penalized due to turbulence. This can be performed via Jensen's wake model, but first, it should be checked whether B is actually in A's wake. This function computes the angle of the wake cone generated by turbine A. This can be used together with function IsInWake to see if B is in the wake of A.

Value

JensenAngle returns the (onesided) angle of the wake cone generated by a turbine for distance x.
