Future wind energy control applications require surrogate flow models that can capture processes on short time scales. Dynamic extensions of wake models might be a useful low cost solution. So far, studies have tested the proposals mostly in LES or LIDAR campaigns. At the same time, readily obtainable turbine SCADA measurements are increasingly being used directly for model input or validation. Newly available high resolution recordings allow for the study of processes on shorter time scales. The present study examines the modelling capabilities of a dynamic wake model by utilizing high frequency SCADA data. Therefore, the data is first analyzed for cross-correlation and time delays. Secondly, the dynamic wake model, initialized with SCADA measurements, is used to predict a two turbine wake interaction. An offline tuning algorithm is used to adapt the model for the shorter time scales.
