Low-Speed Regions from Large Eddy Simulations of Wind Farms

Caption: The figure shows a three-dimensional visualization of the flow in a simulated wind-farm. The blue regions show a volume rendering of low-velocity wind regions. These low velocity regions are primarily found in the meandering wakes behind the turbines.
