VAWT Multiple Actuator Cylinder Model

DOI

Author: Andrew Ning

A modified version of actuator cylinder theory to account for multiple vertical axis wind turbines. Can run with just a single turbine. See examples in example.jl.

Written in Julia, but an older Python version of the single actuator cylinder theory is also available in a branch.

See paper for theory details: Ning, A., "Actuator Cylinder Theory for Multiple Vertical Axis Wind Turbines," Wind Energy Science, Nov 2016, (accepted). doi:10.5194/wes-2016-19
