"SuperCharging" Conventional Wind Farms with Megascale
Capacity of an existing conventional wind farm
can be greatly enhanced by setting a megascale kite arch to windward to
divert the common LLJ layer downward to blow directly on surface-based
turbine arrays. The kite arch would stay upwind, well clear of the
turbines, as it naturally creates a downwash to scrub away surface
turbulence with a strong coherent jet. The method might also favor single
unit turbines in selected cases.
Comment and development of this topic will be occurring here.
