To account for the problem of an azimuthally constant induction in the BEM method, which influences on incorrectly predicted aerodynamic loads in the yawed flow, a skewed-wake model implementation to the BEM method has been performed. The numerical aerodynamic loads have been compared with the wind tunnel data of the NREL Phase VI and against another numerical campaign. At first, the model predictions have been validated against experimental data performed with aligned flow conditions, showing a reasonable match. Successively, the model predictions are validated against experimental results obtained with the wind turbine yawed. Results show, a possible better prediction of loads at yawed flow with Skewed-Wake correction, however the method does not overall correlate better, compared to the BEM method with implemented local variability of the induction factor.
