Title: FLORIS 2017

Abstract

This code is an enhancement to the existing FLORIS code, SWR 14-20. In particular, this enhancement computes overall thrust and turbulence intensity throughout a wind plant. This information is used to form a description of the fatigue loads experienced throughtout the wind plant. FLORIS has been updated to include an optimization routine that optimizes FLORIS to minimize thrust and turbulence intensity (and therefore loads) across the wind plant. Previously, FLORIS had been designed to optimize power out of a wind plant. However, as turbines age, more wind plant owner/operators are looking for ways to reduce their fatigue loads without sacrificing too much power.
