Characterisation and Integration of Piezoelectric Trimorph Actuators for Blade Active Surface Control on a Scaled Wind Turbine (2024)
Journal Article
Fuentes Holden, J. P., Gan, L., Sims-Williams, D., Gilbert, J., Osborne, P., & Bastankhah, M. (2024). Characterisation and Integration of Piezoelectric Trimorph Actuators for Blade Active Surface Control on a Scaled Wind Turbine. Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 2767(9), Article 092094. https://doi.org/10.1088/1742-6596/2767/9/092094

The paper investigates the integration of piezoelectric bending actuators on trailing edge flaps (TEF). The characterisation of piezoelectric actuators is of great importance due to differences in performance resulting from sample variability, actuat...

A fast-running physics-based wake model for a semi-infinite wind farm (2024)
Journal Article
Bastankhah, M., Mohammadi, M. M., Lees, C., Diaz, G. P. N., Buxton, O. R., & Ivanell, S. (2024). A fast-running physics-based wake model for a semi-infinite wind farm. Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 985, Article A43. https://doi.org/10.1017/jfm.2024.282

This paper presents a new generation of fast-running physics-based models to predict the wake of a semi-infinite wind farm, extending infinitely in the lateral direction but with finite size in the streamwise direction. The assumption of a semi-infin... Read More about A fast-running physics-based wake model for a semi-infinite wind farm.

Curled-Skewed Wakes behind Yawed Wind Turbines Subject to Veered Inflow (2022)
Journal Article
Mohammadi, M., Bastankhah, M., Fleming, P., Churchfield, M., Bossanyi, E., Landberg, L., & Ruisi, R. (2022). Curled-Skewed Wakes behind Yawed Wind Turbines Subject to Veered Inflow. Energies, 15(23), Article 9135. https://doi.org/10.3390/en15239135

This work presents a new engineering analytical model that predicts the effect of both the turbine yaw misalignment and the inflow wind veer on the wake flow distribution downwind of a wind turbine. To consider the veered inflow, two methods were exa... Read More about Curled-Skewed Wakes behind Yawed Wind Turbines Subject to Veered Inflow.
