Master thesis - Evaluation of a wind farm parameterization in an operational mesoscale model

This study by Pooja Ramakrishnan looked at two simulations (with and without a wind farm parameterization) from HARMONIE-AROME, an operational weather model, and assessed the performance of the wind farm parameterization by using the simulation results for the Belgian wind farm zone in the North Sea, and comparing it with observational data from Sentinel-1 SAR, floating LiDARs, measured power as well as results from a large-eddy simulation.
