The scope of the present work is to have a better understanding of the accuracy in numerical simulations of the wake generated by wind turbine rotors. Due to the extensive measurements performed in near wake, MEXICO project has been used as reference for this investigation. A code based on lifting line theory and coupled with a free wake method has been used during the analyses and the results have been compared to the experimental data.
