A plume, almost contained within the diameter of the blades, extends downstream behind the turbine velocity is 0.33 times free stream velocity at 6 blade diameters (558/600 m) downstream velocity is 0.55 times free stream velocity at 10 blade diameters (930/1200 m) downstream velocity is 0.63 times free stream velocity at 16 blade diameters (1488/1920 m) downstream 1/12/2009 version 2.1 7

12 Tip Vortices and Turbulence Alfredson P-H, Dahlberg J-A. - Ref 2 1/12/2009 version

13 Turbulence The wake turbulence is generated as a side-effect of the rotation and power. The wake turbulence at 10 blade diameters downstream is 12% of the velocity at that point (variation of 12% in wind 930/1200 m) Hand M et al. Ref 4 1/12/2009 version

14 Power Assumptions: 3.3MW generated with turbine operating at Betz limit with blade tip speed of 6 17 rpm with wind velocity of 13.8 m/s blade disk diameter 93 metres P = T 2π rpm / 60 T = P * 60 / ( 2π rpm) = * 60 / (6.283 * 17) = Kg m F = T / d = 39,864 kg force at blade tips (approx 39.9 metric tonnes) (Ref. 5) 1/12/2009 version

15 Vortices from the tips Vortex Circulation = 4L/(πρbV) (Ref. 6) where L = lift (kg) ρ = air density (kg / m^3) b = wingspan (m) V = speed (m/s) Examples Vortex Circulation Cessna 172R m Turbine 5.4 Boeing Boeing (156Kts) Vortex Circulation Cessna 172R 93m Turbine Boeing 737 Boeing (156Kts) 1/12/2009 version

16 Windmills in the Mist Please view the video at this point to see: the danger of the blade-tips hidden by cloud, the downstream void in the cloud, and the turbulence effects in that cloud, around Cullerin Wind Farm situated 33.4 km SSW of Crookwell Aerodrome. Windmills in the Mist 1/12/2009 version

17 Summary By direct wind tunnel measurements the velocity deficit in the wake is 37% at 16 blade diameters (1,488 /1920) metres. The wake extends more than 16 blade/disk diameters downstream (1488/1920 m), and by asymptotic extrapolation the wake could extend 50 blade diameters (4,650/11,112m) or more. Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar measurements of offshore wind farms show the velocity deficit extending more than 15 km (>100D), from turbine clusters with a total height of only 110 m. The velocity deficit is coupled with turbulence being 12% of the free stream velocity at 10D 930 (1200) metres downstream, and by accounts extends further than the velocity deficit. The wake interacts with terrain and airflow as it flows downstream. The wake represents wind-sheer, which is dangerous to passing aircraft. Light aircraft taking off and landing are at substantial risk. Ultra-light aircraft with little momentum are more at risk. In aviation terms, the volume behind a turbine is a no-go zone for an aircraft (ref 1/12/ ). version

25 Summary Wind Turbines are dynamic obstructions that generate a plume in their wake, by measurements extends more than 16 blade diameters (1488/1920 m) down stream, and by extrapolation we can expect the plume to extend to 30 blade diameters (2790/3600m) or more downstream, airborne SAR evidence shows it extending > 15 kms downstream for offshore wind farm clusters. The wake plume contains turbulence energy. This wake and turbulence plume cannot be seen directly, and is a void to flight. Pilots should avoid flying behind the turbine blades, because the velocity deficit extends downstream in the plume like a tube for a few kilometres. Note there is also an upstream velocity deficit close in front of the turbine. A suitable buffer zone is required around any aerodrome to permit safe operations of aircraft. To ensure pilots can avoid the wake, the turbines should be set-back so it is not possible for the wake plume to affect expected aerodrome traffic and operational areas. 1/12/2009 Version

26 Safety Considerations 1. The NSW Rural fire services requires the aerodrome to support Category B Aircraft (ref-14), namely the twins: Cessna 310, Piper Cheiftain, Beechcraft Baron, and the Partenavia P That Category-B circling requirements and areas be used because they match the category of aircraft operating into the aerodrome. 3. That consideration be given to the extent of the turbine wake plumes when determining set-back of turbines to ensure that the wake does not infringe on the operational areas of any aircraft using the aerodrome and associated operational areas. 1/12/2009 version
