Wind turbines belong at locations with good wind, that goes without saying. In order for the wind to be converted into a good electricity yield, wind turbine operators must take numerous factors into account. In the future, powerful computer models of wind flows could help to further improve the energy yield when planning and operating power plants. Such models are being developed by a research team at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) headed by Prof. Fernando Porté-Agel. When planning wind farms, they help to position the wind turbines where the wind is strongest and interaction with other wind turbines is minimal.
