Stably stratified flow conditions often exhibit wind veer, or a change of wind direction with height. When wind turbines experience this veered flow, the resulting wake structure tends to exhibit a stretching into an ellipsoid, rather than a symmetric shape or a curled shape. Observational studies suggest that the magnitude of wake veer is less than the veer of the inflow, whereas large-eddy simulations with actuator disk models and actuator line models suggest a range of relationships between inflow veer and wake veer. Here we present a series of large-eddy simulations with a range of veer shapes, a range of magnitudes of veer, a range of wind speeds, and both rotational directions of the wind-turbine rotor investigating the effect on the wake deflection angle. These results can guide the application of wake steering in stably stratified flow.
