This paper presents a new method for determining the interaction between a wind farm and the prevailing wind for wind energy siting studies. It is shown that neutral planetary boundary layer flow with wind farming essentially is steady and twodimensional; and that the convective forces,

In addition it is shown that a numerical representation in the form of backward differences allows for an implicit solution of the two horizontal velocity components in vertical direction, iterating on the turbulent viscosity, in combination with a marching solution in the horizontal directions.
