This article presents a comparison of CFD simulations of the DTU 10 MW reference wind turbine with and without vortex generators installed on the inboard part of the blades. The vortex generators are modelled by introducing body forces determined using a modified version of the so-called BAY model. The vortex generator model is validated by applying it for modelling an array of VGs on an airfoil section compared to both wind tunnel measurements and fully gridded CFD.
