Wind turbine wake flow visualization data from experiments conducted at UMore park on March 5-6, 2018 and April 8-9, 2018



This data includes flow visualization videos using natural snowfall in the wake of a utility-scale (2.5 MW) wind turbine. In addition, the meteorological and SCADA data from the same time periods are included. These datasets are used to analyze the interaction between the wind turbine wake and the ground surface, which has important implications for understanding the impact of wind farms on their surroundings, particularly in the area of agriculture.

Meteorological data and SCADA data from the two experiments, video data from the two experiments, experiment logs from the two experiments
