The Front Cover
The article on page 20 written by Thomas Hahm from F2E Fluid & Energy Engineering focuses on optimisation of wind turbine spacing to improve the performance. When placing wind turbines too close together turbulence generated by the wakes of the wind turbines may seriously affect their structural integrity and so becomes a limited factor in wind farm lay out. The image on the cover is a snapshot of a meandering wake behind an Enercon E-66 wind turbine (blue represents high wind speeds and white represents low speeds).
