    Abstract

    Wind energy came up as one of the alternative energy and also renewable ones. There were various assortments of wind utilization system, one of them by building a wind farm. The cross flow wind turbine could be used to extract wind energy in low wind speed. The double interaction between the air current and the runner, causes the cross flow turbine to have high power coefficient. In order to be able to work perfectly, it should be noted that proper arrangement of wind turbines on the wind farm would decrease a wake. The objective of this research was aimed to study the effect of the cross flow wind turbine in wind farm with 2D numerical analysis using ANSYS FLUENT CFD software. The variations of the wind farm in the study were inline and staggered configuration, in which the distance between the turbines was 0,5D;1D;1,5D respectively. Each variation was tested at the wind speed of 2 m/s and at the TSR 0,1. The study revealed that the best arrangement of cross flow wind turbine configuration was the tightest staggered arrangement within the distance of 0,5D and0,5D. The exact distance would increase the power density on the wind farm. On the other hand, the biggest power density was 1.641 W/m2 which was able to upgrade to 10% compared with isolated turbines.
