A new numerical tool to simulate the interaction between wind farms and local meteorological conditions

The French long-term energy program is encouraging the growth of wind energy. In order to predict this energy production and attempt to optimize it, irrespective of the production site (sea, mountain), a better understanding of wind flow...
