The paper describes a wind tunnel scaled wind farm made of two wind turbine models, each featuring active blade pitch and torque control. The models, governed by supervision and control systems similar to those of a real wind turbine, are capable of simulating steady conditions and transient maneuvers in the boundary layer test section of the wind tunnel of the Politecnico di Milano. Expanding the classical scope of wind tunnel models, the present experimental facility enables the testing of wind farm controllers, as well as the study of interaction phenomena within wind farms.
