An important effect on the fatigue loading of wind turbines in wind farms is the dynamic change of full and partial wake inflow. A simulation approach of the so-called wind turbine wake meandering based on a Lagrangian model is proposed. This enables the generation of time series of the large scale wake movement at selected down- stream stations. Simulations of the wake meandering of a 5MW wind turbine are compared with measurements of the meandering in the near wake. The measurements are performed with a lidar installed at the nacelle and are analyzed with specific techniques developed for the measurement of large scale wake dynamics.
