The new turbulent wind tunnel in Oldenburg will be opened to researchers in the course of 2016. With an outlet of 3 meters x 3 meters and a measurement test section with a length of 15 meters in the open and 30 meters in the closed configuration, the whole wind tunnel is optimized for investigations on wind turbine models, with respect, for example, to wake effects and the flow field within wind farms. Turbulent wind fields will be generated by means of an active grid at a maximum velocity of 30 m/s, where typical characteristics of atmospheric wind fields e.g., gustiness can be realized.
