Abstract
Nowadays, the interest on turbulence effect related to wind turbines has extensively growth within the wind energy community. Turbulence and wind shear are essential characteristic of wind, which can provide indications about the behavior of wind itself. It is well-know that a slight variance in wind speed generate large deviation in the output energy of wind turbine because of the cubic relationship between wind velocity and power output. Although, the phenomenon of turbulence is still not complete solved, both in terms of mathematical and intuitive understanding, the practical implications of this issue have encouraged multiple efforts at turbulence predictions by any reasonable approach. The present study is an attempt to pull together current finding related to the effect of turbulent loading on the wind turbine performance assessments. Accordingly, an exhaustive compilation regarding the issue of turbulence on wind resource assessment and a comprehensive literature review covering the different methodologies considering the subject within wind turbine application are presented. The issue of turbulence is discussed focusing on the wind speeds from various directions. Furthermore, the study presents a preliminary overview of the state of the art of the numerical calculation of wind-turbine aerodynamics. Moreover, a comprehensive examination of the status of research around turbulence treatment on wind turbine applications is presented. Hence the relevance of considering turbulence on wind resource assessment and the techniques and methods used for it are highlighted.
