KNMI Technical report - Wind turbine parameterisation in HARMONIE-AROME

As part of the Dutch Offshore Wind Atlas (DOWA) project, we implemented the wind turbine parameterisation from Fitch et al. (2012) in HARMONIE. In the presence of wind turbines, this parameterisation adds an elevated drag term to the atmosphere, which locally decelerates the flow.
